Microsoft to cut perpetual Office support by 50%, raise price by 10%

News

Microsoft plans to upgrade the “perpetual” Office for enterprises in the second half of the year, when it will also slash support to five years and raise prices by 10%.

The company’s multiple shots at the traditional form of licensing — dubbed “perpetual” because the license provides rights to run the software as long as one wants — are more evidence, if it’s needed, that Microsoft is eager to push, pull, and prod commercial customers into service-esque subscriptions.

Microsoft reiterated, seemingly for the nth time, that it is expending virtually all of its Office-related resources on the subscription-based Office 365 and Microsoft 365, and implied that anything but a subscription would be second rate and substandard.
