Office 2019 is out but Microsoft says you should not buy it

Posted on Monday, February 11 2019 @ 14:03:34 CET by

It's kinda strange but Microsoft is now discouraging users from using two of its products! First up, the software giant says you should only use Internet Explorer as a compatibility solution, and now they're discouraging customers from buying the new Office 2019 suite:
The competition to the recently released Office 2019 is, of course, Office 365. The perpetually licensed, frozen in time Office 2019 package exists for those customers that absolutely need it, but for any consumer or company that is amenable to the subscription-based version, Microsoft thinks that's the far better option. That's because the Office 365 version contains a number of cloud-based features that aren't found in 2019: machine learning-driven drawing and handwriting recognition, integration with LinkedIn, a range of live data sources for Excel, and so on.
In an attempt to illustrate the superiority of Office 365, Microsoft hired twins to perform a series of tasks in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. One was given Office 365, while the other one stuck with Office 2019. It's marketing of course, but it's still kinda curious to see a company discouraging consumers from buying one of its products in such a strong way.
