    Will you be getting Office for iPad?
    So, it's finally happened. Microsoft Office is finally on the iPad after Microsoft formally introduced it at an event today. Office is one of those packages that some absolutely live in, and it's still one of the very best at what it does. As the iPad has grown in popularity over the years, Office has been noticably absent. But now that it's here, will you be getting it?

    I'm going to continue to use office on my ThinkPad and Pages on my iPad and iPhone. I can't justify the $99

    Agreed the price makes it not worth it. IMO another Microsoft fail.

    If I can get Office 365 for $80 for 4 years, I probably will try it.

    Microsoft stores were giving them away. If you brought your iPad to a Microsoft store they would give you a free 1 year subscription but it was for the first 50 customers per store.

    Many students and educators can get Office 365 for $80 - $90 for four years. It covers installation on 2 computers and 2 tablets. Some schools even offer it to students for free. I have used both collegebuys.org and academicsuperstore.com, which are both authorized to sell Microsoft and Adobe products to students and educators at greatly reduced prices.

    Dear me no, certainly not at the price of 80 PER YEAR. I like to purchase my software, get the disks and know that it's mine. I dislike subscriptions and 'cloud based' working environments.

    It just seems like we are retuning to the 'dumb terminals' of the 70s and 80s.

    I will never get Office 365. I will stick with Office 2010 until it irrevocably falls over then I will move to Open Office.

    If it was a one time price of 90 dollars, I might. But per year is ridiculous. Especially if you've bought a copy for your Mac or PC.

    I know I still use office 2003 but only because office XP doesn't work on windows 7.

    iWork comes free with any new iOS device. If you don't have a new iOS device, the price to buy it is still cheaper and it works just as well. Its too late in the game for Microsoft.

    Not worth the yearly subscription for me since I don't do a lot of word document creation or editing on my iPad. In a pinch, I can use Pages.

    We waited four years to get an app with a $100 subscription fee to make it useful. Forget it.
