I have 2016? Worth upgrading? Anyone know?
Check this page out:

Nothing really substantial in terms of new features.
Nice to have the most recent version if nothing else.

I have it and don't see a difference between 2016 vs 2019.
If you can't get the deal and have 2016, don't worry about it. You're not missing anything special.

I get it for free through my college apparently. I hadn't even heard that 2019 released yet

Is this just for one year?
No, these are perpetual licenses.
Office 365 is the yearly subscription version. This is office 2019, which is the locally installed perpetual license version.

I do not think "work" work email works. Only school work email works.

Just curious that if updated the software in the future do we need to use the academic email again? What happened after you graduate from the school? Can we still be able to update it or not?
When you buy the license, you can access the license key for 1 month after purchase.... You can still use the license after that month is up, but you need to make sure you write it down somewhere....

you can pay an extra ~~ 4$ to get them to keep the license key available for 24 months.. but i don't think this is necessary..... as long as you e-mail yourself a copy of the key or something...

Im not sure if you will ever need the academic email to verify again in the future... My guess is that if you e-mail your license key to your personal e-mail address you should be ok.. but I'm not totally sure..

The only reason I was looking for it.. is because a few weeks ago (maybe a month)... my Office 2016 license through HUP stopped working... Office 2016 said I needed to reactivate... I logged into HUP and it said my license was not available anymore... I was quite confused - i didnt bother investigating too much, because I knew Office 2019 was coming out soon..

I decided to install Office 2019 Preview from the Microsoft Site.... the preview activated and was working fine but apparently would expire at the end of December..... so I was hoping to find a 13$ office 2019 license key ... which I did.. yay! :)

Having said all that .. other than my office 2016 deactivating for some reason... the only real reason I wanted 2019 was because its the "latest and greatest".. etc... I definitely don't need it over 2016... however, for 13$ its worth it IMO.. if not only for the updates security/bugs etc. and better support going forward..

If I had to pay full price I definitely wouldn't be buying it anytime soon... if I had a working 2016 copy..

Yes -- with Office 365 you can still install the locally installed versions... but they will be called Office 365 and receive updates..

i.e. if you had office 365 prior to office 2019 release... your version of office 365 was on par with office 2016... office 365 gets updates all the time.. so by the time office 2019 was released, office 365 users already had all the features of it..

Can you activate 2019 on more than one PC?
Not sure about the one you buy but the 2 free licences I got via my school's onthehub is 1 PC each, one is denoted as Professional Plus and one is Home and Business but office is so fragmented and they are pushing 365 so hard I cant even find the page for professional plus. I did drag up the page for Home and Business 2019 but they dont show it anywhere if you try to browse to it normally.
