probably 2013 even though i like the look for 2010 even better. screw cloud features, the web apps in skydive for free are more than whats needed if you want to edit a doc in a web browser

I would go for Office 2013, because you keep it forever, on the other hand it is $99 a year for Office 365 and it can used on 5 pcs

I'm not sure. I was going to say Office 2013, but price wise I'm not sure it would have been any more expensive. The only thing that concerns me is that I wouldn't be able to edit a document if I canceled the subscription, with Office 2013 you don't have that worry.

Actually, it depends on the university.  Most of the larger ones offer Office 365 (or even Office 2013) to their students at little or no cost at all (thanks in part to programs such as MSDNAA - which is NOT going away); I would check with the campus bookstore (the typical gateway for universitywide programs such as MSDNAA) or, if you are a sciences/technical/engineering/medical (STEM) undergraduate or graduate student, your faculty advisor.

 

(Example: the University System of Maryland offers MSDNAA systemwide, including the HBCUs that are also members of the System, such as Morgan State, Bowie State, *and* the University College.)

i would always suggest the static purchase rather than a subscription.
