No subscription. That's nice. But.... Google Apps is free and just as good. :)

Google apps is faar from just as good. For very basic use, maybe, but I can't even do half of what I use excel for in google apps.

I'm really glad they are moving to a hybrid model where the people who don't know how to budget and save can do the low cost monthly option, and those of us who know how to spend a little more in the present to save a lot over the long term can buy the one-time purchase option. Best for everyone. Adobe on the other hand is forcing everyone to subscribe to software.

Maybe for what you need. I use Google Apps regularly but it's far inferior to Microsoft Office (especially Excel) for technical work.

This is an incredibly stupid post. You are ignoring that a newer/better version will be out next year. If you want to run out of date software, just pirate it....

Also, the tier that's '150' is missing a lot of functionality. You have to step up to $229 for the full package. Making even less sense, seeing as the next version will be out in a year's time.

There is merit to disliking subscription software, but 'know how to budget'/'more in the present, save in long term' is nonsense.
