This is what so many businesses are after now. Monthly fees. Sounds cheap, but it's relentless. Cell phone, cable TV, Gym membership, Netflix, etc. How about instead of a monthly fee, a usage based fee? This puts the ball in the consumer's court.

As a mac user, I always long for a cross-platform application software and hope that I can run Office in macOS exactly the same way as it runs in Windows. Right now, the two versions are still different and I hope Microsoft can finally release an Office that is really OS independent.
