Microsoft Services Agreement Update 2019
Well, that`s a great reason for me not to “update” Office 2016 (for Macs) on Office 2019, if 2016 no longer receives support in October of this year. For now, I have total control of the 2016 patching, having defined the MS application “Microsoft AutoUpdate” in my Mac on the equivalent of “Leave Me Now, but I`ll choose when I`ll download and install.” The document attached above shows that this will no longer be the case with 2019. But they are sure to offer you an ultimatum in a very nice way. And the 3 days of reading the “agreements” give me something I can focus on when I retire. I have MS Office 16 on Mac, but it`s installed in the computer and in everything that matters is mine, as in “I own it,” not as in “I graciously provided it as a service for simple mortals like me by MS.” So I have “Office,” but as nothing I don`t have access to “365.” The completely modified agreement, which is related to the beginning of the MS article, itself bound at the top of me, generally does not list “Office” among “services,” but only “Office 365” and “Office 365” according to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. Does signing up for Microsoft services like Bing count as an activity? Office 2016 Extended Support (security updates) works 10/2025 The funny thing is that I haven`t installed any MS “services” on my Mac. But I have a “product.” Except that it is a piece of software to soon reach EOL (read more, in an instant). And while I have Windows 7 in my PC, it`s now an outdated system as far as MS is concerned. I don`t subscribe to the agreement proposed by MS to extend the lifespan and I don`t even fix it with 0day support micropatches. I isolated it from the Internet and for communication between it and the rest of the world, I use the Linux operating system now on pc co-installed with Win 7. I use Win 7 to run older application software and occasionally older files that I still have to work with. Microsoft has reduced the period of inactivity in the new service agreement from five to two years.
Some services, OneDrive and Outlook.com, require unique registrations to avoid inactivity and possible account termination. An email address is part of the Microsoft account. In theory, Microsoft would send this address by email. You don`t have a chance to set up the account with a single-use email address or email address that you no longer monitor. It is best to update the email address. A recent report that Microsoft has updated its service agreement to pave the way for it to no longer offer Windows services to Chinese users has sparked widespread debate among Internet users in China.
