Haha. I transfered myself to OpenOffice and LibreOffice.

I spend the newly freed up money on games instead, and I'm a lot happier for it.

LOL. Last week, I bought Office 2010 for one of the kids, because of the draconian licensing undermining the newest version.

Still, I don't see myself paying subscription pricing for software. I know that Microsoft's long-term plan is to hook everyone on subscriptions, then gradually raise rates, until we are paying more for Windows and Office than we ever had before.

I'm really happy that MS is able to recognize its mistakes and correct them.

Great news! Now, if the just make a perpetual license available to students again, maybe I'll buy it.

You mean "Office 2010", not "Office 2012", right?

It's good to see them listen to users on that one.

Wow why don't they apply this kind off concept to windows and listen to the upset people about windows 8 and make some changes their too.

How do you know they are not?

Because if they were they would have not gotten rid of our would bring back the start menu and they would also have given non touch screen desktop users a way to turn off or not even install the "metro" interface. That's how I know they did not listen to people when it comes to Windows 8.

Maybe they should realize that a key ingredient for continued success is not making their customers mad in the first place.

Agreed, that was one of the reasons I recently bought a Office 2010 disc, because of their previous stance on 1 PC, 1 time. Yikes, get a grip on real people and their real finances Microsoft, which it sounds like they finally did. Kudos to those who complained.
