So, it's a ploy to force people onto Office 365, agreed?

If it's a ploy to force people, then this change is affecting enough people it seems (otherwise the ploy would be pointless).

Of the total number of Office licences sold last year, how many of them do you think were shrink-wrapped CDs, versus how many were OEM or MSDN installs?

But of course, be my guest and assume that there's some massive conspiracy going on here.
