Buying Office 365 is needlessly complicated
As well as jumping through hoops just to buy the right version of Office 365, you are still left with a significant download and installation before you can even use it. I remember one of my clients busted his ISPs data limit with the Office 365 download. It was the Mac version and was over 1.2 GBs in size. In fact I remember at the time comparing it with the download for Ubuntu, which is smaller and contains not only LibreOffice and Thunderbird, but an entire operating system! Anyway, the Office install also took several hours to download on my client’s poor quality internet connection.
In contrast, if you go with GSuite you can be up and running in minutes and you don’t need to install anything.
