Microsoft changed the way of supporting Office for Windows 10 as well as Windows Server In my personal opinion, this will drive the adoption of the use of Office ProPlus, which effectively means that this number within the graphic will increase even more next year! However, not everyone knows the differences between the versions, so I hope to give a good explanation of what the major differences are. Office ProPlus will get major and minor new features added to it on a weekly basis. See below how the different versions apply to either Server and Desktop OS. Keep in mind that Office ProPlus is the way to go for future on-premises or Cloud Virtual Desktop implementations. What previous Office version s will be supported in the future and what not? Microsoft finally released the future of how we need to deal with Office on a Virtual Desktop environment in the future. There might be some changes to this in the future on customer feedback results. Stay tuned!!
Not supported Supported until October As you can see, only Office perpetual licensing is supported on Windows Server Configuration and infrastructure The tests for this research were performed on a Nutanix-lab environment. The node on which the tests were performed is part of a 4-node cluster.
A more recent version of this report, updated to reflect licensing changes, can be found at www. See notes in italics below. Server-based desktops can reduce operating costs and improve security.
