I had to buy this edition of MS software because I didn't want to face the trouble at
Office: colleagues not being able to open files made on Mac software. I have used
Mac's word-processing software Pages in the past. It is good, but then it often did not open
On PCs using the Windows platform. I ended up using Mac software suit only for documents
That I was not going to share with anyone.
Yet, it was easier in past to work on Mac's Pages, as we used take printouts. Now, most
Of the time, we send files online. Hence compatibility matters more these days.
Besides, we send files to people all over. They should be able to open and respond
To our work. All this is possible if we work on MS Office.
However, we should also take into account the option of Office Online. It is a free
Online version of office but limited in its functions. If Office Online serves your purpose,
Nothing like it. You don't have to spend on this Home and Student version. To use Office
Online, you have to be connected to the net, though. Using Office Online, we all can save
Our files easily on One Drive or Google Drive, avoiding the risk of a hard-disk crashes.
Another option is buying a subscription to Office 365, which is expensive and out of
Consideration for home users like me.
The product is good, and given its lifetime use, it is not expensive.
If you are going to use Mac for, say, 8 years or so, nothing wrong with buying this. You can
Always install it on your new Mac using the key. One machine used is for a lifetime!
