The end of Microsoft Office. The famous office suite is changing its name permanently

The actions of some companies are at least… odd. Take Intel, which recently killed the Pentium and Celeron series. Yes, the former saw a drop from premium to budget guys along the way, but it did well there. Now another giant from Silicon Valley has decided to kill the office suite, which for many people has become a synonym for this type of application. This is the end of the Microsoft Office era and the time for Microsoft 365 has come.

Microsoft 365 instead of Microsoft Office

If anyone has thought that this change is a result of the influence of Polish literature, not necessarily of the highest caliber, take it easy: The 365 brand has been known at Microsoft for years. Now, however, it replaces other services. It alludes to the fact that the company provides its services 365 days a year. In the case of leap years, of course, there is not one day when everything stops.

It’s also worth adding that Microsoft Office may be gone, but the Office brand still works. This includes packages available under a lifetime license, not services. We are talking about Office 2021 and Office LTSC. In their case, however, it is difficult to get major updates to higher versions. These, if available, will not be free. Of course, this does not apply to the corrections. These are normally displayed.

But let’s go back to the Microsoft 365 suite: it will still include the basic services of the office suite, i.e. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Loop, Clipchamp, Teams or Stream. In addition, it will come to him yet Microsoft Designerwhich is the Photoshop equivalent from Adobe.

Interestingly, although the change is described on Microsoft’s website, it is this one still uses the Office brand and the description was published on the office.com website. As you can see, not everything is closed to the last button here. But in the end it all ends up as Microsoft 365.
