Nonetheless with Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium all features and functionality are available on non-touch based systems, and older versions of Windows, and will work seamlessly with a traditional keyboard and mouse.

Access your documents from virtually anywhere
Microsoft Office 365 Home allows you to install Office on up to five PCs or Macs, Windows 8 tablets and iPads. Equipped with SkyDrive, Microsoft Office 365 Home facilitates the uploading of files to your 1 TB of cloud storage for you to access from any Web browser, PC or Mac without the need for manual syncing or a tangled mass of cables. All you need to do is login to skydrive.com from any compatible browser to start viewing and editing your work.
In addition to saving your documents to SkyDrive online, Microsoft Office 365 Home will by default save your work to a local SkyDrive folder on your computer which automatically syncs to its online equivalent. The benefit? You can access your documents in the local SkyDrive folder on your computer at any time without needing to be connected to the internet.
