Interesting difference in the way Microsoft handles licensing on their new software:

I saw that, but how often do you change computers?

I just last December bought a new computer after maybe 5 or 6 years on the old one.

But what happens if you have a laptop computer that's 3 years old, think that it'll last you for a while, and install Office 2013 on it. Then a week later your computer breaks down, and it is too expensive to fix. Is Microsoft going to make you buy another copy of Office?

I have Office 2003 Professional, and need to upgrade to a newer version. I'm looking at putting Office 2010, rather than 2013 because of Microsoft's licensing.

Looks like I was not the only one not happy with Microsoft's policy on the licensing of Office 2013, and Microsoft has backed down from their earlier stance on their policy.
