    Outlook and Excel.

    Don't really need Excel, most of what I need on Google Sheets but do tend to use it every now and then - randomly.

    I have Excel, Word, and tried Open Office and Google Sheets as well. Microsoft options are just due to familiarity. It's 2013 version which works just fine for me. If I was forced to go to 365 I think I'd just ditch MS altogether, since the free options are getting pretty good.

    Libreoffice. Free and does more than I need.

    im using office 365 pro for home usage. It's much better than 2007 or 2010 versions. Just Power Query makes it worth it. I also pay for it myself for other jobs I do on the side.

    I started to use it due to low bait price to sign up during purchase of a new notebook. Also with Office 2010 end of service (updates) coming up, I tought the 5 device per user made it justifiable for the time being. However, it seems better over the long haul just to get one of the higher priced packages. The catch is if you want Outlook too then you have to pay a bigger premium. Functionally, I can see some improvements in Excel and Outlook but nothing earth shattering.

    I think if you are going to run W10 you might as well go with the newer versions of Office whether its one time license fee or subscription. Run a modern computer with modern software IMO.

    Office 365. It's pretty cheap. $99 a year for 6 users, each user also gets Skype minutes and 1TB of one drive storage. I'm sharing my subscription with my folks. The Skype minutes come in pretty handy.

    Do you mean what do you use at home for personal use?

    WFH I just use my work laptop with Office 365 on it.

    For personal use, I don't think I would need to use anything?
