Microsoft's Cloud Oriented Office 365 Home Premium Touches Ground

Maximum PC: After months of beta testing, Microsoft on Tuesday announced the worldwide availability of Office 365 Home Premium. It's a departure from previous versions of Office, and while Microsoft likes to refer to Windows 8 as a reimagining of Windows, Office 365 is a "reinvention" of Redmond's popular Office product line for consumers. Unlike previous versions, Office 365 is a cloud-service. (Cloud Computing, Microsoft, Office 365 Home Premium, Software)

Consumers will never pay a subscription for Office.

But businesses will. Getting productivity software that is updated often and geared to their needs is exactly what businesses want.
