Consumer is in it's last throws.
...only the blinded fanboys (yes MS has plenty) think otherwise.
MS have no interest in Pay Once, Play Forever.
Year on year pay us and pay, pay, pay again and only on business orientated software.
No matter how much you bitch, they have no interest in people that bout Office 2003 and MIGHT upgrade to 2020.
They have no interest in small / no margin consumer.
The have no interest in competing with Google / Apple, except for enterprise (Office / Cloud)
My guess for the spying was not to see what you were doing, it was to see what you were NOT doing. You have an old version of office. We have 99% of people that have only opened Groove once, they never use a Winphone, they don't use Edge as their [primary browser.
Kill them all, either by instant death, or a slow lingering abandonware.
MS = Enterprise
Apple = Prosumer / Consumer
Google = Consumer....and everything MS does that they want to crush.
