    Should I use a KMS to activate Office?

    The answer to this question, given the conthetion of the licensing market, can only be No.. In fact, given that at very thescounted prices, it is possible to get hold of an original license, it makes no sense to use tools of obscure origin, which are a major cause of PC malware infections.
