Office 2019 is closer than ever but not for all users. Microsoft just announced that this new version will only be compatible with Windows 10.
The office suite Office is without a doubt more than essential software for most computers. Composed of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Skype, it has become a must for a large part of the population.
The new version Office 2019 is scheduled to launch its first trial versions during the second half of this 2018, but according to an official statement, it will be compatible only with those Windows computers that are updated to Windows 10.
What versions of Windows will be compatible with Office 2019?
The version of Office successor to 2016 will not be compatible with computers that are on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. All these equipment must be updated to enjoy this new package.
This software will, therefore, be released for Windows 10, Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018 and the next version of Windows Server. The support offered will be about 7 years (5 years of general support and another two years of extended support).
What changes will we find in Office 2019?
This new software will come with different developments in its commercial version. Among them, we find the introduction of Click-to-Run technology, which allows you to use the program while the installation process continues to run.
MSI will not be provided as an implementation methodology for Office 2019 clients, but MSI will continue to be provided for Office Server products. In addition, Windows 10 support has been extended for all business and educational clients that run certain versions (versions 1607, 1703 and 1709.). This will help them in case they need some more time to deploy Windows as a service.
No doubt Microsoft is looking for all users to update to the new version of the Windows operating system as soon as possible. Do you think he will get it?
