    Good news: It'll be compatible with Macs

    Bad News: Nobody wants subscription-based software.

    Ok, it may be wanted by larger corporations, but consumers seem to want to own their suite. It'll be interesting to see if this has any effect on Redmond's business.

    Sure but at $2 a month that's only $24 year. Cheaper than most shareware.
