Vot?

by Volker Weber

There is one final wrinkle. The Office apps that ship with Windows RT are not licensed for use in any commercial fashion, whether for profit or otherwise.

And here I was thinking I could author texts that would be commercially published.

Well, honestly, I think Office is included in Windows RT for "free" because Microsoft couldn't figure out a way how to sell it. (You can't distribute an installer for ARM and you can't distribute it through the Windows Store because it's not metro.) Hence they included the cheapest licence available 'Home & Student', which is btw the same noncommercial use licence that comes with Office 2007 and Office 2010 Home & Student.

For commercial use you can simply upgrade the licence, which is legally totally fine but psychologically a tough sale because you pay for something you already have - it comes with Office right? Most commercial customers won't care anyway because with Software Assurance or Office 365 they are already licensed for commercial use.

I don't see why people are obsessing about this or try to make a problem out of it. If you are a private customer enjoy your free copy of Office and as a business user with the according licence you are good to go too.
