    The cost of a device licence is a big barrier to the use of the product $400 (multiple years of a one year office365 subscription).
    Secondly, Visio is a tool to generate drawings. Because it is not really offered for personal use, people resort to using excel and word draw functions which are really poor at generating drawings (expecially with excel). If Visio (standard/basic) is offered on a office365 personal subscription, there will be many more users who are exposed to the program which will result in people starting to use drawing tools more efficiently.

    There needs to be a bridge between paint and doing drawings in excel / word (both are really poor at going “drawings”). Visio is that tool and MS needs to be more alert to the fact that it is probably their biggest untapped revenue stream.
    I would suggest adding it into office365 personal at the same cost as what it it offered on Office365 for business ($5/m for online version or $8/m for desktop version with online access).

    Keeping in mind that most office 365 home users will be family orientated and with multiple users (especially kids), you will show kids that there is a great drawing package by MS. Surely you don’t want this market to go find other programs?

    In reality, MS should be telling us why they can’t / won’t integrate this into Office 365? (Instead of us having to give reasons why it should be included)
