Microsoft has unveiled the new logo and new naming for Microsoft Office. According to Microsoft, the new Office logo represents the doorway to new opportunities. And the new naming makes it easy for everyone to understand.
With the new naming, there will basically be two types of naming. One is subscription based which is Office 365 and the other is based on the year you buy the product (Office Client – Release Year Editions). There are two primary and different ways you can get the new Office:
- Office 365. This is our services brand. Office 365 services are subscriptions with multiple installs for different devices and are always the latest technology every day of the year. Last week, we announced an extension of our Office 365 services for consumers – Office 365 Home Premium – and a new option for business users – Office 365 ProPlus, which join our Office 365 services for small businesses, enterprises, education and government.
- Office Client – Release Year Editions. Just like a car, these editions are the latest technology up to that year. The new release is the “2013” edition. You’ll see this label in suites such as “Office Home and Student 2013.” These editions are also in the cloud and save to SkyDrive by default, but people buy and install once on a single machine.
Note: Individual client applications such as Word, Excel, Outlook, OneNote and PowerPoint carry a year-model moniker no matter how you get them. If you are a subscriber, the year model edition is updated as part of new updates.
Not sure how well it goes with consumers or enterprise. Here is the link to the blog post.
