For Christmas, I purchased an excellent new MacBook Air notebook for my wife. I enjoy giving technology gifts…in part because I like to set up those devices and learn new things in the process. In this instance, I purchased Microsoft Office for the Mac, and I received the right to install that program, which did not include Outlook, for about $139 on up to 3 computers. In early February, I discovered Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium, which gives me the right to install that program, which does include Outlook, for $99 on up to 5 computers. What’s the difference? The second offering demonstrates a subscription based software revenue model, which means I owe $99 per year. I’m renting software.
