Office 2016 Is Released

In the last few days, Microsoft released the new version of their office suite: Office 2016. We have bought it, installed it and we are ready to go. The big difference for us, right from the get go, is the payment method. It’s a subscription model, and we chose to buy a yearly subscription. You can pay monthly though, if you prefer.

Installing Office 2016

It took around 10 minutes to install the software. If you have any Office applications open while installing the new version, you will be politely asked to save your work and close them.

Unfortunately, after the install, we found that our installation of Office 2013 had vanished, being replaced by Word 2016. That’s all fine and dandy, but what if we need to create some tutorials for Word 2013? We didn’t ask for Word 2013 to be uninstalled! The cheek. Once more Microsoft take control of our affairs.
