Office Home/Student really married to hardware? (Non transferable)? Office 365 better?
Posted on 2013-02-06
I read on an amazon review that if you buy 2013 Office (home/student), and your computer dies, you MAY NOT install it on your new computer - that it is married to the physical hardware on which it is installed.
IS THAT TRUE?
If so, maybe the Office 365 is a better bet.
Is it legal for dad to buy the 365 subscription for $100/year and allow his 3 adult kids who don't live at home to use it? I presume the dad would be the administrator and each kid would have is own work space?
I'm really not in love with the subscription model but spending $139+$109 for Home/Student plus Publisher) seems expensive, and risky if it really is married to that hardware.
