You Can No Longer Purchase Earlier Versions of Microsoft Office

Posted by Scott Bartlett on 11 February 2016

This is because Microsoft wants you to adopt the new way of thinking about Microsoft software: constantly updated, available in the cloud, and getting new features all the time. Office 2016 is a step-change in that it is cloud-centric; it is no longer restricted to your desktop PC or laptop.

Never before has this been so seamless.
