protect them from what?
Predatory sales tactics. Microsoft is trying to force more services on them.
Uh, no. No one has to open their wallet to anyone.
If there is value in what Microsoft may be advertising or suggesting once the user logs in then all the power to them. The user opens their wallet and voluntarily pays.
OneDrive personal is free and comes with a built-in encrypted vault now. They bumped the default storage up to 100GB or 75GB which is more than enough for folks to back up their critical stuff.
Most folks will pay the $9 or whatever per month for O365 and get that integration too. Then their OneDrive hits 1TB and they get Microsoft Office.
G00g is crap. Plain and simple. No competition with Microsoft Office and O365. None.
We're working with a number of clients that have the full O365 Single Sign-On (SSO) setup in place and it's sweet. Multi Factor Authentication makes it even better with an app instead of a text. They've got a good thing going there.
I agree Office 365 is great, but it's about the only thing.
What we were actually discussing is how bloated windows 10 seems to be. Why can't the default install be the best for performance. You damn well know people don't use half the features on a base install. Yet stupid shit like cortana is slowing down systems.
