Microsoft Office - Family License
The current strategy of Microsoft is to sell either office 365 (yearly subscription) or single permanent license products. This I discovered only today after purchasing a new laptop for the family and tried to get my recently purchased office installed on the new PC. It would not let me do this (even under the same user account) , since I have my recently purchased office on my other PC.
I feel this strategy is very unfriendly toward family consumers, as I have to sepdn 150 EUR for each PC to install office on it and allow all members of my family to access the suite of office products. I would not mind to pay a bit more but get a family account, where I can install office on 2 or 3 PCs at home. Atleast if it is under the same user ID (Microsoft account ID).
Today your strategy is very much skewed toward the corporate customer that leaves individual customers in a difficult state. I request you to sincerely consider my comments, especially because a yearly subscription on Office 365 is not very affordable for me.
I have raised this as a complaint during a chat with one of your personnel today - incident ID 1426083543

Office 365 Home allows for installation on 5 machines and 5 tablets. Perhaps you have the Personal edition of office, if so you can choose to upgrade.
