What a shock!
MS going for lock-in and grabbing money? Who would have thought it? It's just more of the rent-seeking behavior we've learned to expect of our fine corporations these days. They don't have enough billions, mostly tax-free, you see.
Hopefully, many (I know better than to even hope "most") of the folks MS is trying to shaft will say "No, thanks" and switch to LibreOffice. And with the new version of LO, they can even have the ribbon (not that I can see why they would want it, but I know some do).
