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

Re: the wonderful opportunity it is.

All companies love a subscription.

It would be an interesting exercise to calculate the average family's monthly subscription load.

- MS office

- other online storage (coz your Apple/Google/whatever few GB wasn't enough for your stuff)

- broadband

- phone

- Netflix

- Prime

- Sky

- probably a few random phone apps

- random other stuff (for example, I long ago lost the argument with Mrs Fink about installing a water softener, so we're stuck with paying for salt for the rest of our lives...)

That's a lot of $/£ going out on a constant basis.
