    Ouch Home and Student has gone up in price (2007 was £60 regularly). I think this is risky by Microsoft - Might push people to start checking out alternatives. I know I've switched to google docs for personal documents.

    Ditto here - Office Pro 2013 for £8.95 v's £389. Great timing because I had to reinstall my HUP version of Office 2010 and it's now decided that it can't be activated (for reasons unspecified). Speaking of Office Pro though, it also comes with Lync.

    Not sure I'm convinced by the latest Office iteration - for a start it looks pretty ugly unless you slap the "Dark Grey" theme on it. On the upside I like the easy cloud integration.
    If you have bought a copy of Microsoft Office 2010 since 19th October 2012 (and up until 30 April 2013) you will be elibible to upgrade to this latest version for free.
    Anyone got more information on this - I've got the Home&Student pack on the rest of the family's gear - bought last month - and would like to be able to upgrade. But when I checked the page that PC World linked to it seemed like the only game in town was Office 365 at some crazy price (£90 for three machines is reasonable, £90 per machine for the upgrade was not).

    EDIT: spoke too soon - it's http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/offer/ (although that website doesn't seem to like Chrome on Ubuntu at all)

    I may go for the subscription option, I'd rather have everything and not need it than need it and not have it, though I religiously like to keep my card details from Microsoft lol, I wonder what way they manage the annual renewal...

    Have they made it 'even more intuitive' by removing all of the easy access features and burying them in random places of the GUI again? I *still* get so many cases of people unable to use the 'new' office programs!

    I've no idea how anybody can afford to spend £80/year on office software any more. A lot of people that I know (including myself) are striving to *ditch* as much expense as possible.

    Well I enquired at the Microsoft store, as expected I got hit with the maestro barrier, less and less companies are accepting maestro these days and my bank doesn't offer any other options darn it lol, though paypal seems to be accepted, the agent I was chatting with had no info on paypal but site seems to offer it as an option...

    Re: News - Microsoft Office 2013 now available in the UK

    Anyone know (preferably with some Microsoft URL to back it up) what the position with regards to the Office 2010 Home & Student "Family Pack" is? This is a three license setup, but from what I can see of the Microsoft site it looks like I'd be trading in my 3 licenses of the old gear for one of the new ones ... not a good deal in my book.

    On the other hand £80 per year for a three license upgrade I might be very interested in (and yes I know this year would be a freebie because I bought during the offer qualifying period).

    Then again LibreOffice (which apart from the Calc bit is good enough for my needs) is £0.

    Damn, I can't get the HUP thing thru my work email.

    Best I can get as a student is a 4 year sub for 365 for £60. Not too bad I suppose especially since it can be used on 2 PCs or Macs.

    Can't afford it right now so I'll just stick with Open Office for the time being.

    LibreOffice 3.6 has been more than enough for me in the few years that I have been a student so I'll be sticking to that for now.

    Looks even worse than Windows 8.

    Looks like Office 2013 was designed by kindergarten kids. Well, I understand Microsoft .. times are hard ... child labour is free!

    Btw, why does Student and Teacher Edition no longer have Outlook ?
    Plus, why is Access never included in this edition ? I used Access when I was in High School !

    Just bought 2010 professional for £299 (retail box) and will have the option of upgrading free - saving me £90!

    Might not bother upgrading though if Office 2013 has the look and feel of Windows 8 - it's simply awful for non-touch devices!
