A post at Microsoft’s Office News website clears up confusion about the number of installations customers are able to make with each version of the new application suite. The table is clear and unambiguous. Customers who buy the Home Premium edition of Office 365 can install the software on five separate devices and transfer licences between devices. The more traditional Office 2013 package is for one device only and can’t be transferred.
Clearly Microsoft wants to make the subscription-based Office 365 the obvious choice. Are there any remaining reasons to choose Office 2013 instead?
