You now that Microsoft/Office 365 doesn't support any English but the colonial one, do you?

You are speaking of a managed environment, where someone (not you) is packaging applications for automated distribution, as well as managing updates (for the OS and the applications).
Not something you'll be able to setup yourself.
(although you can try alternatives, some have free versions for a limited number of computers)
Only if you set up your laptops to use local egress instead of the central internet access point as most big companies do; which puts a strain on your VPN infrastructure that doesn't have the capacity to handle all the users connecting from home at the same time (and it is too late to order more hardware).
Don't forget also that unless you are working in a non-productive part of the economy you need something besides Excel and Outlook in order to work.
You need to be able to access your on-premises applications, and again the lack of VPN will impair your ability to work@home...
Very few companies have set up the needed infrastructure for working without VPN.
But for their IT one can expect to see the users being grateful.
(they were in the company I am currently working with)
I saw that 10% of Parisians left the town when the confinement started.
When it is lifted, one can expect the other 90% wanting to go elsewhere.
Then you will have the best town to be: Paris without Parisians!
(all the amenities will be opened since people working there can't afford to live in Paris anyway)
One of the reason it is easier to train AI to recognize white men faces is maybe that they don't use so much Photoshop for their online profile pictures.
For dark coloured people it may be just a matter of poor contrast ;-)
And for yellow ones, they look all the same so no wonder...
