Additionally, there is the emergence of articles indicating that Office 365 has become Microsoft 365 … NO, at this time (mid-November 2020), Office 365 is not (yet) Microsoft 365.

Microsoft 365 is an Office 365 + Enterprise Mobility and Security + Windows 10 bundle. At least that is (still) true for Office E1 / E3 / E5 corporate licenses. For others it’s a little more complicated (who said Microsoft licensing is easy?
