Microsoft capitulates and some angst over Office 2013 is relieved

Reacting to customer feedback, Microsoft has decided to change the license policy for Office 2013.

That post noted a change in license policy for Microsoft Office 2013 which said:

A single user copy of Office 2013 is licensed to a single machine, not to a single user. Officially: The software license is permanently assigned to the device on which the software is initially activated. That device is the “licensed device.” In the event of an under warranty failure, you can ask Microsoft to transfer the license.

Well, as you can imagine that licensing policy did not sit well with – well, just about anyone. The forums and polls published on TechRepublic were overwhelmingly against it.
