M$ Drives More To GNU/Linux and FLOSS

As I predicted ages ago, M$ is raising prices to the severely locked-in as their cash-cow shrinks.
“Here’s the new Office 2013 and Office 365 packaging and pricing information that Microsoft has shared with partners to date. Office 365 Home Premium will cost $8.33 per user per month (or roughly $100 a year).  Office 2013 Home & Student will cost $139 for a one-time purchase and use on a single PC. Home & Business 2013 will cost $219 for use on a single PC.
see Microsoft to launch the new Office commercially on January 29.

News: You can get a great desktop or server operating system for $0 from Debian and a great office suite for $0 from The Document Foundation. Buy pizzas with your savings or whatever you want to boost the economy locally.

    Spread it over several parties. In my extended family there is a “birthday party” once a month or more frequently where tables and counters are laden with food. Sometimes it is a dozen boxes of pizza.
