Pricing Office 2013: Subscription versus perpetual license

A recent Computerworld article does the math, comparing subscription pricing (which Microsoft hopes will become the new standard model) and a traditional perpetual license for various editions of Office 2013, also colloquially known as Office 15 (since Office 2010 is technically considered Office 14).

See this link:  Microsoft raises Office 2013 prices to push new Office 365 sub plans

For additional details, see this Computerworld article: Microsoft’s Office 365 Home Premium to cost $99.99 annually per subscription

Note that individuals who purchase Office 2010 for Windows or Office 2011 for the Mac on or after October 19 will be eligible to download “Office 365 Home Premium or the equivalent Office 2013 offering” and use it for free for one year. Small businesses will be able to download a free trial of Office 365 Small Business Premium and use it for three months. See this Microsoft blog article for details.

There has been speculation that the “release to manufacturing” (“RTM”) version of Office 2013 will be available in November, and that the suite of programs will be available to the general public in January or February of 2013. As far as I know, those dates aren’t firm.

Stay tuned…I will write more about the look, feel, and features of Office 2013 soon.

New post soon (about separately numbering two table columns in Word 2010)

Sorry for the long lapse between posts.  It has been a hectic year!  Lots of training projects (mainly rolling out Office 2010 and Windows 7 at large law firms in Southern California).  I have another such gig coming up soon, but am between jobs for the next few days.  Will try to add a new post about separately numbering two table columns in Word 2010, as you would for a Separate Statement of Disputed and Undisputed Facts.

With the help of a client, I discovered an easy way to add numbering to two columns. The tricky part has to do with stopping and restarting numbering.  If you’re not careful, you might end up mixing up the lists, which can cause a certain amount of grief later on.

I’ll provide instructions and workarounds when I have more time.  Soon.  I promise!
