The Microsoft Office blog is trying to clear up some confusion about the new Office brand. Read the latest post:
- Office 365. This is the 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.
- Office Web Apps. Free browser-based companions to Office, are available to everyone and deliver the best browser-based productivity experience for quick viewing and light editing.
