  • Microsoft 365 Life – your opportunity to rent an Office 365 superset

    I’m reading a lot of … speculation … about the newly announced (but not yet seen) Microsoft 365 Life.

    Whadda name.

    Mary Jo Foley has a balanced and fact-based article on ZDNet. The speculation you’ve seen about Windows-for-rent are (at this point) all wet.

    Wes Miller, who knows more about Microsoft licensing than any person alive, puts it this way:

    We’ll see Microsoft 365 Life (or a similarly named for-rent combo) roll out around the middle of next year. Don’t expect to see any major changes from Office 365.
