If you’ve got Office 2016, are you allowed to install a subset of the applications?
This Microsoft article (http://bit.ly/1OQrDXg – see question 6) confirms that the ability to install individual applications is not available with Office 2016.
OneNote licences are being discontinued; page 6 of the October 2015 Product Terms documents confirms that commercial customers may acquire rights to use OneNote with the purchase of an Office Professional Plus 2016 licence.
There’s a change to the Home Use Program rights: previously you could install HUP software on up to 2 devices (2 PCs or 2 Macs), now the October 2015 Product Terms document confirms that it’s only one device – see page 75.
Customers will be able to install Office 2016 beginning on 7th October 2015 – see question 4 on this site: http://bit.ly/1OQrDXg.
