Whats the difference between Office 365 and Office 2013? Well nothing in products; you still have the same word, power point, etc. Main difference is that one is subscription based at $100 a year and they other costs around $100.
OK; there are some fundamental differences. Firstly, Office 2013 can only be installed on 1 computer and from what I’ve read you can never install on any other computer after that. So you have to buy a new copy if get a new computer.
Office 365 can be installed on up to 5 devices; including windows pc’s, tables ad a Mac. It also has addition of free skype calls each month, more cloud storage, etc.
However, you are paying that $100 a year where as with Office 2013 its only the once so that is also a big fundamental difference. Would you like to pay subscription for office?
So that all said, is the new Office suite worth it? If using a touch screen then quite possibly (especially if using surface or other Windows based tablet) as you can use touch screen interface with the new Office.
However, even with the revamped interface I would personally say that unless going to use touch screen stay with your older version OR pick up 2010 which will no doubt be cheaper with the new one now on the shelves.

So, will you be updating to the new Office 2013 or 365? Or will you be sticking with your current version or using LibreOffice? Please let us know your thoughts.
