  1. I don’t use Microsoft Office 2016 because of Microsoft is tracking lots of people’s documents all over the world!

    I use LibreOffice instead

    1. Good for you.
      I wonder if LibreOffice has the complete support for Microsoft documents and especially for formatting.

  2. There is no way to join the insider program unless you purchase Office 2016 in some form. That being said, this insider preview is the fastest Office I have ever seen. Its startup time is instantaneous, and it works really well. I do not put much stock in people who talk about spying, etc with MS. They are on this year’s list of the world’s 131 most reputable companies. This disproves all those spying claims!
