Microsoft has told Equipt customers that the subscription software package will be killed off on 30 April 2009. The date comes three months after the company confirmed plans to ditch the Office and security subscription service in November.
Microsoft said that applications included in Equipt would “no longer be fully functional” after that date. It confirmed that Office Home and Student 2007 won’t receive subscription licence updates and will enter “reduced functionality mode”. Effectively customers will only be able to view Office documents, but they won’t be able to create or edit docs via the service.
