    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to know which Office options look the best for my use. I started a small gaming indie development studio. Currently working on an awesome game (which is rather advanced right now) which will probably be ported to Windows 8 which is one of the reasons i actually bought a Surface Pro.

    Here my situation :

    - I have 3 Windows devices (including the Surface Pro) and a Samsung Galaxy SIII and ive heard OneNote for android exist so this is rather good news for me.
    - I need business plan because i am doing commercial activities and i really need outlook.

    So i was looking at theses options :

    1) Buy Office 2013 desktop version for 250$ one-time. However this option doesn't look pretty interesting since it will only be installed on one device.

    2) Buy a subscription to Office 2013 for small business premium which will enable me to install on 5 devices and where my domain will work nicely there for 150$ a year.

    3) Buy Office 2010 (Install it on my main PC and Laptop) and get Office 2013 free (which gonna go on the Surface Pro)

    Just wanted your opinions on which Office options appeal more to you if you was in the same situation.

    Thanks a lots!

    #2? Or purchase Office 365 yearly subscription for $99 per year for 5 PCs. Includes Word, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, Access, PowerPoint, etc. Great value IMO.
