Microsoft Office 365 Personal UK Price
We all have known and used various features of Microsoft Office some time or the other. The software finds application everywhere, especially in workplaces where these productivity suites will be impossible to ever replace. Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel are terms that even the most technically naïve have heard because of their widespread use. All such productivity suites have been bundled together and released as Microsoft Office for many years now.
However, due to the latest advancements in technology, more specifically, the boom of cloud computing services, Microsoft was forced into changing ways. Although initially resistant, Microsoft has finally jumped into the boat by partially altering its business model. Along with conventional software programs that can be purchased off the internet or any retail store, Microsoft has released a cloud based productivity suite that provides each individual the opportunity to rent its software. Office 365 is a subscription-based service that provides the usual services of Microsoft Office, but this time, over the internet. Even though users were initially skeptical about this new feature, they have now come to embrace it because of the useful features this service provides.
Three different versions of Microsoft Office 365 are available. While Office 365 Personal is for use by a single individual alone, Office Home 365 Home is meant for multiple members in the family. The enterprise edition is entirely different and is meant for use in workplaces.

However lucrative this offer might sound, UK government has openly stated it will be shifting to open source free software in the future in order to cut expenditure, a move that Microsoft protested. All these strategies, when taken together, indicate that Microsoft is fighting tooth and nails against the rising popularity of various open source software that are gaining traction in the market.
