What's the difference between Professional Plus and Office Home and Business 2019?
A major difference: one is the PC version (MSO Professional Plus 2019 ) and the other one is the Mac version (MSO Home and Business 2019).
Other differences are:
- MSO Professional Plus 2019 (for PC) does not include OneNote but includes Publisher and Access;
- MSO Home and Business 2019 (for Mac) does not include Publisher and Access but includes OneNote.

how do u sign up with your work email?
As the thread title suggests, my guess is that he works for a teaching institution (staff or faculty), therefore he can use his "work email" to get this deal...

My problem is this pArticular computer has vista, but spec wise it should run 10.
Isn't Vista now unsupported? Even Windows 7 only has a year of extended support left. Time to move to Windows 10.

My vague recollection is that Robin Hood gave it all away to poor people, not gratifying himself by ensuring he had the latest bells and whistles software on his laptop...
But I am personally happy with paying the $19 discounted price for MS Office 2019, fully cringing inside knowing that some other users will have no other legit alternative than paying the full retail price of USD $250...
Or you can just get an Office 365 subscription and get it all included for $70 a year, along with 1 TB of cloud storage. Or the 5 user family version is $100 with 5 TB of Cloud storage. If you need the Cloud storage and would pay for it anyways, like me, it's like getting MS Office for free.

A HUGE difference is that on Windows, Microsoft Office gets 10 years of support, whereas the Mac version gets 5 years.

I suspect much more development time and effort is put into the Windows versions.

Reading the thread, so confused on the whole 1 month/24 months thing.
In the old days, you get the product key (like technet), get the ISO, install, put in key, done. Key never expires, and has like 5 activation on it.
Did they change things so the key has to be activated within 1 month/24 months?

Nothing changed. Once you get the product key, it remains valid forever, you can activate it next year or today, etc.
It is just that OntheHub noticed that many buyers misplace/lose their product key, so OntheHub now offers to charge you extra to "safely store your key" for you for 2 years. Only the fools should pay for this service...

@MrDisco My school doesn't sign up for this, and I can't get this offer.
Same reason you closed the other thread? Or is there another reason?
