Reply to post: Shameless RIP OFF!!! 32x price hike

Let's see what the sweet, kind, new Microsoft that everyone loves is up to. Ah yes, forcing more Office home users into annual subscriptions


Shameless RIP OFF!!! 32x price hike

The useful software lifetime of an office suite is 10 years (bare minimum).

$15 for 10 years = $ 15

$49 * 10 for 10 years = $ 490

That is a whooping 32.6x price hike, not just tenfold. And who says that the $49 subscription fee is cast in stone for the next 10 years, and Microsoft isn't going to hike it further ???

You may want to consider moving to LibreOffice ...
