Retail Copies of Office 2013 Are Tied To a Single Computer Forever
M$ craps on customers again...
"With the launch of Office 2013 Microsoft has seen fit to upgrade the terms of the license agreement, and it's not in favor of the end user. It seems installing a copy of the latest version of Microsoft's Office suite of apps ties it to a single machine. For life. On previous versions of Office it was a different story. The suite was associated with a 'Licensed Device' and could only be used on a single device. But there was nothing to stop you uninstalling Office and installing it on another machine perfectly legally. With that option removed, Office 2013 effectively becomes a much more expensive proposition for many."
More money for Microsoft. Big corporations will cut deals for licensing; but unfortunately the little guy will just has to pay the price. However, I bought the student teacher version awhile back of 2010 and was able to install it on 3 computers. And I ran 2003 without a hitch or expense for almost 10 years. So I think one can definitely get their money out of using the office suite.
