  • Nice. Keep rocking Microsoft.
  • Does that make us "officers"? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Lol

  • "340 million downloads of its Office Mobile apps" -- lots of iOS and Android users. They could have at least ONCE update office apps on WP8 (7-7.8 is dead anyway). They're pretty much useless
  • Yeah they are on 8. But they can't since it's system app. Can't update through store
  • 8 dead as is 8.1... 10 all the way.... Oh that's rights.. See yesterdays report
  • You also see yesterdays report. WM10 might be dying too, they didn't mention anything about mobile yesterday
  • That's equal to India's population
  • At the lowest rate which is what? $6? MS is bringing in $360 Million a month in revenue from Office 365. Probably more depending on subscription sizes. That is an impressive chunk of change.
  • Depends how they define commercial customer.
  • Here in Hungary, all student get free office 365 pro plus subscription if they register, as long as they are students. From elementary school to the university. (With parental permission if he/she is under 14). I wonder if they count as "commercial users" or not. Posted with the Windows Central app for Windows 10 on HP 250 G1 notebook. It is a scary old monster, I think :D
  • That's some pretty deep penetration (that's what she said). 1.5 billionish Windows users, 1.2 billion of them using Office in some way. That's the kind of cross-sell ratio all companies strive for.
  • This and 270 million Windows 10 users are why they're not worried about Windows Phone market share.
