  1. Microsoft axes Office 2019 from 'Home Use Program' The company is moving away from perpetually-licensed Office 2019 and now offers annual subscriptions to Office 365 Personal and Office 365 Home for $69.99 and $48.99, respectively. Martyn Williams As expected, Microsoft has dumped the perpetually-licensed Office 2019 from its "Home Use Program" agreements with organizations that license the productivity software for the workplace. Home Use Program (HUP) is one of the benefits provided by Software Assurance (SA), in turn either included with some Office licensing categories or optional with others. Although SA may be best known for granting upgrade rights to the next version of a "perpetual" license – such as Office 2019 – it also is included with some subscription-based licensing of, for instance, Office 365 or its more inclusive big sister, Microsoft 365. The idea: Let employees buy the same Office suite that they use at work, then run the suite on their home PC. Employers liked the idea because it implicitly encouraged employees to work at home. HUP has long offered employees of eligible organizations discounts on perpetual Office licenses, those purchased with one-time payments that grant the user rights to run the software as long as desired, theoretically in perpetuity. But earlier this year, Microsoft modified HUP to offer consumer-grade subscriptions to Office 365 as well. At the same time, Microsoft made clear that the one-PC-per-license deals were obsolete and likely to be retired from HUP. They now have been. "Office Professional Plus 2019 and Office Home and Business 2019 are no longer available as Home Use Program offers," Microsoft said in a revised FAQ about HUP. Instead, Microsoft offered annual subscriptions to Office 365 Personal and Office 365 Home for $69.99 and $48.99, respectively, a 30% discount. Subscriptions purchased through HUP will extend existing Personal and Home plans the employee may already have, and once bought at the discount, all future renewals will be at the lower price, even if the buyer no longer works for the organization. The only requirement is that "you maintain recurring billing on your subscription," according to the FAQ. The move is in step with Microsoft's emphasis on Office 365 and its rent-not-buy model. Although Microsoft continues to offer perpetual licenses in several forms and has pledged to follow Office 2019 with at least one successor, the company has made no bones about preferring to sell recurring subscriptions. More information about HUP – and instructions on how to determine eligibility – can be found on this website. IDG/Gregg Keizer Microsoft has stripped the perpetually-licensed Office 2019 from the Home Use Program benefit many organizations enjoy. Instead, it offers eligible employees consumer-grade Office 365 subscriptions at a 30% discount. Source: Microsoft axes Office 2019 from 'Home Use Program' (Computerworld - Gregg Keizer)
  2. Microsoft Office may be the most common productivity tool for corporate users, but it's no one-size-fits-all suite. Here's how to decide which version is best for you: Office 2019 or Office 365. Microsoft Office may be the de facto productivity tool for millions of workers worldwide, but it's no monolith. Rather than a single, towering smooth-black Office, there's a whole Stonehenge of options: Office on the iPhone, on iPad, Office on Android smartphones, Office on personal computers, Windows and macOS, Office with a handful of applications, Office with fist-fulls of apps. But when you get down to it, there are really only two kinds of Office. One, labeled Office 2019, is the stand-alone suite that traces its roots back to the last century. The other, Office 365, is the subscription service that debuted in 2011. How they differ can be confusing, especially since each includes, more or less, the same applications. Here are three ways to tell these tools apart, and a look at what's coming, based on Microsoft's new support policies for both Office 2019 and Office 365. JD Sartain / IDG Worldwide Microsoft Office 365 Desktop subscription version How Office is paid for Of the differences between Office 2019 and Office 365, purchase plans are among the most striking. Office 2019, whether bought one copy at a time in retail or in lots of hundreds via volume licensing, has been dubbed a "one-time purchase" by Microsoft to spell out how it's paid for. (Labels like "perpetual," which have been widely used by Computerworld, technically note the type of license rather than payment methodology, but in Office's case, the kind of license is tied to whether it was bought outright or simply "rented.") Microsoft defines the term as when "...you pay a single, up-front cost to get Office applications for one computer." Up-front is the key adjective there; Office 2019's entire purchase price must be laid out before receiving the software. That purchase, actually of a license to legally run the software, gives the buyer the right to use Office 2019 in perpetuity. In other words, the license has no expiration date, and users may run the suite as long as they want. Pay for Office 2019 this year and use it for the next seven years? Fine. Run it until 2030? Nothing to stop you. One-time purchases include Office Standard 2019 and Office Professional Plus 2019 (Windows) and Office Standard 2019 for Mac (macOS), the enterprise-grade SKUs available only via volume licensing; and retail packages such as Office Professional 2019 (Windows) and Office Home & Business 2019 (macOS). Office 365, the purchase method Microsoft pushes most aggressively, is a subscription service, so payments are made monthly or annually. In some rare instances, annual payments may produce savings in exchange for a commitment: Office 365 Business Premium, for example, costs $12.50 per month per user when paid in an annual lump sum ($150 per user), but $15 per month per user on a month-to-month plan ($180). All enterprise plans - from Enterprise E1 to E5, as well as ProPlus - do not offer a monthly option but require an annual commitment. Like any subscription, Office 365 provides a service - in this case, the right to run the suite's applications and access the associated services - only as long as payments continue. Stop paying, and rights to run the apps and services expire. (Actually, they don't immediately stop working; everything will continue to operate normally for 30 days past the previous payment's due date.) A license for Office 365, then, is contingent on sustained payments. Halt the latter and the license is revoked. Restarting the payments restores the license. Office 365 plans range from one for individual consumers (Office 365 Personal) and small businesses (Office 365 Business) to educational institutions (Office 365 Education E5) and corporations (Office 365 Enterprise E3). Office 365 is also part of Microsoft 365, an even more expensive subscription. The latter comes with labels resembling those of Office 365, including Microsoft 365 Business and Microsoft 365 Enterprise E3. How each version of Office is serviced Although payments define one difference between Office 2019 and Office 365, Microsoft's turn to a faster development and release pace is ultimately more important to users - and the IT professionals who support them. Think of Office 2019 as traditional software made and sold in traditional ways. That holds for servicing, too. Microsoft provides monthly security updates for Office applications, usually on the second Tuesday of each month, and also fixes non-security bugs for the first five years of the SKU's lifecycle. But Office 2019 does not receive upgrades with new features and functionality. What you get when you buy the suite, feature-wise, is it. If you want to run a new edition, say, Office 2022 (Microsoft has only said it will do another perpetual version, not that it will be so named), you will need to pay another up-front fee to run it. Office 365, on the other hand, has a completely different servicing model. While the Office applications licensed to users through Office 365 receive the same security patches (and non-security fixes) distributed to Office 2019, they also acquire new features and functionality on a twice-a-year schedule. Those upgrades are issued first in September and March of each year as "Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted), then followed in January and July with "Semi-Annual Channel" releases. This support document explains the update channels of Office 365 ProPlus, the application bundle included in Office 365. As new features and functionality accrete, the applications evolve until, at some point, Microsoft says they are sufficiently different to warrant a new numerical moniker, such as Office 2022 or Office 2025 (if the perpetual version goes on that long). It will then package those versions into an upgraded suite for customers who continue to make one-time, up-front purchases. How Office hooks up with cloud services Neither Office 2019 or Office 365 is truly cloud-based, but both are able to connect with Microsoft's cloud services (and to a very limited extent, some third-party services). Currently, both the applications awarded in a one-time purchase of Office 2019 and those installed as part of an Office 365 subscription can connect with services such as Microsoft-hosted Exchange, OneDrive storage and Skype for Business. However, in April 2017 Microsoft announced a major change in the rights of perpetual Office. Office 2019's applications - acquired through an up-front purchase of the suite - must be in their "Mainstream" support period, the first five years of the guaranteed lifecycle, to connect with Microsoft's cloud services. "Office 2019 connections to Office 365 services will be supported until October 2023," Microsoft stated in one support document. (For a while, Microsoft pegged the service cut-off for Office 2016 at October 2020 but within a few months it retreated and said that, like Office 2019, the older suite would connect to Microsoft's cloud services until October 2023.) The change clearly took aim at customers who mixed cloud services with traditional one-time payment software, because it effectively halved the time the latter could be used in those organizations. At the same time, the post-2023 rule advanced Microsoft's efforts to push business customers toward subscriptions. The company hasn't been shy about saying that Office 365 is, in the end, inevitable. "Most of our cloud-powered innovation is coming to Office 365 and Microsoft 365. However, we recognize that some customers can't move to the cloud in the near term. We want to support all our customers in their journey to the cloud, at the pace that makes the most sense to them," Microsoft said. Applications obtained from an Office 365 subscription will never have a connect cutoff date. How Office will be supported in the future On Feb. 1, 2018, Microsoft revealed changes in support for Office 2019, even though the "one-time purchase" product had not yet been released. The company also previewed a shape-shift in support for Office 365, specifically the ProPlus component - the desktop productivity applications - slated to take effect in January 2020. Microsoft plans to slash support for Office 2019. "Office 2019 will provide 5 years of mainstream support and approximately 2 years of extended support," wrote Jared Spataro, the general manager for Office, in a Feb. 1, 2018, post to a company blog. "This is ... to align with the support period for Office 2016. Extended support will end 10/14/2025." As Spataro implied, Office 2016's support also will come to a stop Oct. 14, 2025. Office 2016 is to get 10 years of support (five in the "Mainstream" support stretch, five in "Extended"). Office 2019 will get just 7, representing a decrease of 30%. Because Office 2019's Mainstream support will end Oct. 10, 2023, that will be the cut-off for connecting Office 2019's applications to Microsoft's cloud services (see "How Office hooks up with cloud services" above). Spataro also dissed perpetual Office more explicitly. "It has become imperative to move our software to a more modern cadence," he wrote, implying that years of support for one-time payment software was either onerous for Microsoft or put customers at risk (or both). Along with the reduction of the support timeline, Microsoft also announced that Office 2019 would be supported only on Windows 10. Even though Windows 7 has until Jan 14, 2020, before it's retired, and Windows 8.1 will have over four years remaining, Office 2019 will not be supported on either. Meanwhile, Microsoft initially vowed to curtail support for Office 365's ProPlus, too. A year ago, Microsoft said that after Jan. 14, 2020, only Windows 10 would be supported for running Office 365 ProPlus; that date is the head-to-assisted-living deadline for Windows 7. Windows 8.1 was also to fall off the ProPlus supported list, as was the Windows 10 LTSC (Long-term Servicing Channel) version. Again, Microsoft blinked. In September, the company changed its mind about cutting off Windows 8.1's access to Office 365 ProPlus. "To support customers already on Office 365 ProPlus through their operating system transitions, we are ... revising some announcements that were made in February," said Spataro in a Sept. 6, 2018 blog post. "Office 365 ProPlus will continue to be supported on Windows 8.1 through January 2023, which is the end-of-support date for Windows 8.1."_ The no-support rule for Windows 10 LTSC remained in place, however.

  4. Microsoft is sending users who search for Office 2019 download links via its Bing search engine to a website that teaches them the basics about pirating the company's Office suite. This happens every time users search for the term "office 2019 download" on Bing. The result is a Bing search card (highlighted search results) that links to a piracy tutorial. The linked website --crackfullpc.com-- is a step-by-step guide, advising readers on how to obtain and install a "cracked" version of Office 2019. The steps walk users through downloading and installing uTorrent, a well-known application for downloading torrent files. The site then tells users to download and run a torrent file that will download the pirated version of Office 2019 onto their computer, and then walks the user through installing the pirated version by applying a crack file. At the time of writing, the links for downloading the torrent for the pirated Office 2019 version are down. The domain for the website where these files are located --dinthatharronhad.info-- doesn't show up as malicious based on a VirusTotal scan. The links don't point to a file per-se, but for a search query on another site, most likely part of some sort of affiliate scheme. Since the website is down, we can't tell if the pirated version of Office 2019 users might have downloaded from this site in the past is malicious, but all chances are that it is. Earlier this year, the top ad in Bing for the search term "Google Chrome" redirected users to a fake Google Chrome download page that served a trojanized version of the browser. Today's Bing card recommendation leading to the piracy tutorial was spotted by Dutch security researcher Jeroen Frijters, who posted his findings on Twitter. The tweet got some quite of traction, and Microsoft's staff is expected to intervene and clean up Bing's search results in the coming hours, just like they did the last time with the tainted Google Chrome download ad, which also went viral on Twitter before being taken down.

  5. Microsoft revealed a moment ago how much money it charges customers who would like to get their hands on the company's new Office 2019 Professional. The new version of Office is listed for $439 in the Microsoft Store in the United States. Customers get a copy of Microsoft Office 2019 Professional for the price that they may install on a single PC running Windows 10. Office 2019 Professional is only available for Windows 10 PCs. The professional version includes desktop version of the 2019 versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Outlook, plus Publisher and Access, and is licensed for home and commercial use. The price of the other Office 2019 desktop editions has been revealed as well: Office Home & Business 2019 is available for $249.99 Office Home & Student 2019 is available for $149.99 Office 2019 Professional is only available for PCs that run Windows 10 but on the other hand, the other two editions of Home and Business 2019 and Home and Student 2019 are available for both Windows 10 PCs and Macs. Office 2019 bundles are also available on third-party stores like Amazon. They are available in both Key Cardas well as Download options. It is worth noting that only Home and Student and Home and Business editions are available as of now and the Professional edition is not up on sale. You can find the listing here on Amazon. If you want to buy the Professional edition for Windows 10 or any other edition from Microsoft Store only, the listing can be found here. 👉View Original Articles: gHacks Technology News news.thewindowsclub.com
  6. Microsoft will be making some pricing and naming changes as of its October 2018 price list that will affect some Windows 10 and Office 2019 customers. Here's what's in store. Microsoft has price increases in store for some of its Office and Windows customers as of October 1, 2018. In a July 25 blog post, Microsoft officials acknowledged the coming increases. Office 2019, the next on-premises version of Office clients and servers which Microsoft is currently testing ahead of its launch later this year, will see increases of 10 percent over current on-premises pricing. This price increase is for commercial (business) customers and will affect Office client, Enterprise Client Access License (CAL), Core CAL and server products, officials said. Microsoft also is rejiggering how it refers to Windows 10 Enterprise E3 and related pricing. As of October, Microsoft will be using the E3 name for the per-user version (not the per-device one). Windows 10 Enterprise E3 per User will be rechristened "Windows 10 Enterprise E3." And the current Windows 10 Enterprise E3 per Device will be renamed "Windows 10 Enterprise." According to Microsoft's blog post, the price of Windows 10 Enterprise will be raised to match the price of Windows 10 Enterprise E3. Windows 10 Enterprise E3 costs $84 per user per year. Microsoft also is discontinuing Windows 10 Enterprise E5 per device as of October 1, 2018. Only the per user version will remain, which costs $14 per user per month, or $168 per user per year. Based on Microsoft's blog post, I don't think the naming of Microsoft 365 Enterprise E3 or E5 will be impacted. I've asked if there will be any price increases; no word back yet. Update: A company spokesperson said the company had no comment on whether this means price increases for Microsoft 365. Microsoft originally introduced Windows 10 Enterprise subscription plans (E3 and E5) at its worldwide partner conference in 2016. Microsoft's plan then was to use these subscription bundles to try to win over more small-and-midsize (SMB) customers. Microsoft officials said in today's blog post that the changes are meant to create more consistency and transparency across purchasing channels. Other changes that will be on the October price list: Establishment of a single, consistent starting price across all programs aligned to web direct for online services (OLS) Removal of the programmatic volume discounts (Level A and Open Level C) in Enterprise Agreement (EA)/EA Subscription, MPSA, Select/ Select Plus, and Open programs (Open, Open Value, Open Value Subscription) Alignment of government pricing for on-premises and online services to the lowest commercial price in EA/EAS, MPSA, Select Plus, and Open Programs Delivery of a newly designed Customer Price Sheet that better outlines how a customer's price was derived (direct EA/EAS only) Microsoft told its reseller partners at its recent Inspire partner conference that it was moving toward the goal of providing "one consistent set of offers, supported by a Modern Commerce platform" in this coming fiscal year. (New buzzword of the year nomination by me: Modern!) By updating discounting policies meant to sell software at scale, Microsoft officials said they will no longer be "incentivizing them (customers) to standardize unnecessarily on software."

  9. Today, Microsoft announced a range of changes to its support policies for Windows 10 and Office 365 ProPlus. Alongside of that, the firm also offered some details on Office 2019, its next (and likely last) perpetually licensed version of Office. Office 2019 was first announced at Ignite 2017 back in September. Details were scarce, and Microsoft really hasn't said anything about it since. All we really knew is that it will contain new features that Office 365 users already have. One thing that Microsoft said is that the release will ship in the second half of 2018, which aligns with what was said at Ignite. Previews for the new productivity suite will be available in the second quarter of this year. What's more interesting is that Office 2019 will only work on Windows 10. Remember, the end of extended support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 is in 2020 and 2023, respectively, so there still may be users on the older operating systems. And to clarify, the apps will only be supported on supported Windows 10 Semi-Annual Channel releases, Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018, and the next LTSC release of Windows Server. This means that just like in the new policy for Office 365 ProPlus, Office 2019 will no longer be supported when your version of Windows is no longer being serviced. The client apps will be offered with Click-to-Run installation technology only, meaning that you won't be able to get an installation package that includes the whole suite. It will be downloaded as you run the installer. There will still be an MSI for Office Server apps. Those client apps are listed as including "Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and Skype for Business", notably missing OneNote, Access, and Publisher. It wouldn't be surprising at all if there's no OneNote 2019 given Microsoft's emphasis on the UWP app. It seems likely that Access and Publisher will be in the more expensive SKUs, or you'll have to get Office 365 to use those. Finally, Microsoft won't be providing its usual 10 years of support for Office 2019. It will get five years of mainstream support, followed by two years of extended support, which will end on October 14, 2025. Neowin.net
