There are many great things about Microsoft and Microsoft was done many great things for the country, the age of computers, for business and so forth. What I do feel is a RIP-OFF however is how the evolution to Windows 8 (which really is great in a lot of ways so I am not complaining specifically about Windows 8) and the latest compatible versions of Microsoft Office require the use of the cloud technology and more importantly require the internet. I have no problem with an option for cloud technology (which is still unproven in the long term to be good) but to be forced to use the cloud only greatly disturbs me an that does not even begin to touch on privacy issues. I prefer the not so old ays where you had your own word processor, for example, on your computer. Over the years they cut costs not providing documentation, now it seems they want to cut more costs by not even providing disk media or packaging, and distribute it all on line. What if your internet is down? You can’t even write into your word processor,or calulate with your spreadsheet, or work on your Powerpoint, its a rip-off in my opinion. Plus, what happens when the cloud is compromised? .
