    I gave up on the subscription plan and thats from someone who loves using Office. Now using Libre Office for word and excel. For email I am using the premium version of em client. Working out a lot cheaper so far

    Indeed. For 99% of users, Libre/Open office will do what they need - and you can't really get more secure than a stand alone application - which you can enhance by disconnecting from the internet if you are doing anything particularly sensitive!

    This. Aside from some of the enterprise functions of exchange/outlook and some of the more advanced (and usually niche,) Excel functions Libre will do all most people need.

    Re: Microsoft Office 2019 released for Windows and Mac

    I'm still using Office 2007 , prefer 2003 to be honest. I only use Word for writing books and my mainstay is Publisher which I create invoices and flyers with amongst other bits and pieces. I don't have any need for anything else in the suite so don't even load them.Anything that refers to the cloud I steer away from and that includes Photoshop , prefer early edition of PaintShop Pro to that anyway seeing as Coral screwed that up after buying it.

    Gosh!

    I didn't give up on the subscription and am happy to have Office available on my 5/6 devices. I also have a 1tb OneDrive as well as a whole load of other stuff. It's nice to have free stuff but for the price... I'd rather have the best available.

    P.s. Even with Office 365 I can still install (Which I do) the full Office 2016 suite.
    P.P.s. Also running Paint Shop Pro 2018 Ultimate and it hasn't really changed that much over the years.

    Got Office 2016 for a tenner from work.
    But I prefer 2003
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.
