Beware of download

Pros: Software will be fine once I receive it
Cons: I've ordered the download version of this software multiple times without any problem and have received my license number promptly. This last time, however, the order was charged and invoiced completely and after two days no license number came. Beware that if you need this software quickly this might not always happen and you may be better off with a physical copy.
Excerpt: I mostly use Outlook & Word and occasionally Excel for my business. I've used Office 2003 & 2007 in the past and decided to get this version for my new PC. I feel this package is a great deal considering the productivity you can achieve! The installation went well as a product key version downloaded from the MS site.
Excerpt: I use all products in this package, but only Outlook on a daily basis. Each is clean and capable, especially if you don't need the never out-of-date subscription 365 version. The only problem I had was the installation or I would have given the product 5 stars. The first person I reached at the support desk, which happened to be in India, was able to fix my computer configuration and get the software installed.
Excerpt: I ordered the Microsoft home & Business 2013 after writing @ and getting an assurance that I could immediately install the software. I was not allowed to download the software from outside the USA even if I Dell computer was recently purchased in the USA and Windows 8 was pre-installed. I will be travelling outside the US for several months and I wont be able to install Office until I return to the US even if my registered address is in the US.
OFFICE 2013 IS DEFINITELY A STEP BACKWARD FOR MICROSOFT!!!

Summary: I have been using Microsoft Office for over 25 years; It was always a good product but lately, it seems to be sliding down the slippery slope of mediiocrity; they are going backwards with this version instead of forward. They have eliminated several features like lots of great stationery and fonts and embellishments that used to set them apart from other office suites.
