Microsoft Justifies Lost Office 2010 Upgrades

Wednesday Jun 16th 2010 by Staff

Microsoft explains why it's killed a tried and tested way for loyal customers to obtain a new edition of Office for a low price.

The Register: The company is not allowing upgrades to Office 2010, released to retailers on Tuesday, from older versions of its productivity suite. The move means you must get a completely new copy of its suite.

Microsoft briefly told consumers in a FAQ on the site promoting Office 2010 that it's killed upgrades from Office 2007 and the like in order to, er, "simplify" its product offering.
