I’m happy to announce that your input has had another direct impact on the product. In this case, a decision has been made to have Power Pivot be available in all Windows editions (“SKUs”) of Excel! This means the Business, Home, Standard, etc.. all of these will have Power Pivot. As your comments have indicated, Power Pivot has moved from targeting a specialized audience to generally useful capability for working with data in spreadsheets. As such, it makes sense to make this as broadly available as possible.
We have started rolling this change out with the April Current Channel updates (Builds 9330 and beyond). I’m also happy to announce that these SKU changes will be reflected on the upcoming 2019 version as well.
Thank you for pushing for this!

I do not enjoy the dumbing down of different versions of office. Over the years I have bought the dos, the win 3.1, of office 6, office 97, office 2000, office 2003, , 2010, 2013, & 2016. Now that I am retired I have to pay the full price to do volunteer work with excel. i
