This may be really old news, i'm only posting this in case nobody else knew, sorry if this is useless information (sorry not sorry). I was paying a monthly fee for Microsoft office 365 for about 2 or 3 years and cancelled it six months ago. Every time I load up the software, it tells me that I don't have a subscription.. but lets me use it anyway. Anyhow, i've been using it free for half a year now and it works like before with no problems atall. Just a little thing for those of us on a smaller budget.
