For only $100 per year, your family will be able to run Office365 on any five machines you want (as long as they're desktops or Windows 8 tablets, that is). More interesting than the article itself is the comments. The article closes by asking "Will you [pay up]?" The consensus in the comments is a resounding "NO," with frequent mentions of the suitability of OpenOffice for home productivity.

a corporation whose president codes in octal.
