Re: Has Anybody Gotten The Full Microsoft Yet For Any iDevice?
I have; just finishing off my degree, and so I still qualify for the student pricing on Office 365 ($79 for two computers and two tablets for four years).

I worry slightly over how it'll deal with me trying to edit those documents when I don't have steady internet access, but that's a problem for another day, I suppose. (When I'm in Canada and the US, I _do_ have steady internet access with my cell phone and tablet data plans...)
At under $20/year, it's so worth it.
Question is, is it worth it at $69/year (personal subscription) or $99/year (household subscription)?
Provided that you're actually abiding by Microsoft's license agreements, and you're keeping your computers and software updated, it should be cheaper than buying Office outright. Office Home and Business costs somewhere around $280 outright, and comes with no updates between major versions.
If someone isn't... well, that's why Microsoft is moving to these pricing models, I imagine.
