365 by name, 365 by nature

Pros

Simple to use, eliminates any questions around how we collaborate and it's something we've known for our entire lives... just upgraded for 2023 and beyond.

Cons

Honestly, absolutely nothing. There's very little I'd prefer from any competitors compared to Microsoft 365 and there's a good reason they're the market leader.

Microsoft 365. is pretty essential for. basically doing anything whether in business or...

My overall experience has been out of one to ten, about seven. I've had good times and then I've had annoying times. but there is no question that it is an essential part of business and personal. If you are on the computer or on the Internet a lot.

Pros

I've been using Microsoft for over 25 years Everything from the Excel to word to Microsoft Outlook to. many other apps that are included in Microsoft 365 that are necessary or eventually will be necessary for the price that I pay 999 a month and always having pretty good upgrades I believe it's a pretty essential thing to have if you are using Microsoft. as your operating system.

Cons

It does sometimes get annoying when they upgrade a certain product in a way where you liked the original and eventually. you can no longer use it, which seems to be something that a lot of tech companies are doing these days.

A great tool for office/ home needs.

As a teacher Microsoft 365 is my #1 tool, from creating docuements like test or printable worksheets to spreadsheets with students' grades.

Pros

I like the easyness of it all, how you can always find what you are looking for and how you can customize most of the functions in the different programs.

Cons

If you are not a computer savy person it might be difficult to get the hang of it all, boy you can always fins tutorials online.
