And thus all the toughing up is needed? If it's no ploy for Office 365, then why the toughing it up?
Downloading the Office installer from a website instead of getting a DVD automatically leads to non-transferable licenses, one-device only licensing and the loss of the family pack?
in favour of OEM [...] installs
So, the ideal future is Office 365 or bust? Basically, you either ONLY get it through the OEM pre-installed with a new PC or you MUST sign-up for Office 365?
Sure, not exactly your words, but that's the conclusion.
