Microsoft releases new perpetual Office for enterprise

Microsoft last week announced the availability of the next edition of perpetual-license Office for commercial and government customers.

Dubbed “Office LTSC 2021,” as in “Long-term Support Channel,” the new Office suite was built as a subset of the feature catalog of Office 365 (and its more expensive, expansive sibling, Microsoft 365) that, once released, will live unchanged until it exhausts support.
