More issues with Office 2013.
Apparently, when you buy a retail version of Office 2013, you can only install it on one computer. If that computer dies or is replaced, you can't transfer it to another without calling Microsoft.
I get it Microsoft; you want us to subscribe to Office 365. But renting software is not appealing for many of us. Ease us into it by making Office 365 better than the retail product. Don't turn your retail product into an acidic mess.
I like Microsoft.
Microsoft products have facilitated a good living for me and my family.
But what the hell is going on over there?
It's like a bunch of monkeys humping footballs.
Addendum: Mrs. Pig thought that I should tone down my comments and explain what I mean by monkeys humping footballs.
This is a term in the consulting world used to describe the erratic actions of people in a conference room; footballs bouncing everywhere as they try to tackle an issue.
The hard left and right turns coming from Redmond are vexing at best. At worst, the perception out here is that Microsoft is using brute force tactics to jam a new paradigm down our throats. I agree with Rob Collie when he says that there is no evil person out there called "Microsoft". What we have here is a group of good people trying to make the best decisions for the future of Office. But in the end, that makes little difference. The end result is a frustrated community of users who have to deal with new (seemingly unfair) rules.
