I have been through the Lynda.com videos on Office 365 but something is not clear to me.  If I were on the P1 plan, do I still need to have a local copy of Office 2010 installed on my machine in order to make use of WORD and Excel?

No, you do not. You can use online versions of Word and Excel to create and edit documents and spreadsheets. Click here for more info:

Thank you.

I have discovered that the Web versions of WORD and Excel are limited in what they can do.  How limited are they? Practically speaking do they have most of what most people would want to do?  Is there a link that tells the extent of the limitations.

Thank you again.

I would consider myself an advanced user of Office. It depends on what you are doing, but for the most part Office 365 or Google Docs covers the majority of my needs. I would use the Web Apps with the P1 plan first, and then justify having to buy a version of it.


Here's a good how to on Office Web Apps.
