Re: $100 a year to USE MS Office - lol

Office 365 is Microsoft's answer to Google Docs, which isn't free for business or universities. Qualified educational users can buy a 4 year Office 365 license for $79.99, good for 2 machines. Cloud, like mobile computing, is here to stay. The days of desktop-centric apps are numbered. If you use Office on multiple computers at home or work and upgrade every other release, Office 365 is a better deal than Office 2010 and earlier.

One great feature is Office On Demand, a service that temporarily installs a full copy of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, or Publisher on any Windows 7 or 8 machine, lets you open or create documents on your cloud-based SkyDrive, and then deletes the app from the system after you close it. Office On Demand doesn't use up any of your five full installs.

Great review from PC Mag.

I'd rather just have Office 2007 Portable.

Actually, I do.
