The business versions of Office 365 (MSFT) are officially out. Prices range from $20/user/month for Enterprise & Government version to $12.50/user/month for the Small Business Premium version. An InfoWorld review praises 365's feature set, admin tools, and ease of use, while granting "there's still plenty of room for improvement." With its latest Office refresh, Microsoft has gone out of its way to encourage a mass migration to subscription services, as it tries to keep Google Apps at bay. (previous: I, II)

    @Marty have you done some analysis on this to come to that conclusion?

     

    I was thinking that not paying for a new edition every few years would offset the subscription, plus you get updates as they are ready instead of waiting for that next office version to come out?
