Office 2016 for Mac - Device Based Activation
In Education, Device Based Activation makes a lot of sense for shared computers so that an O365 is not required while still giving O365 users access to the latest features that aren't available in the volume license. This feature is currently available for Windows but not Mac OS.
This exists on the Windows side - if the idea is convergence, shared code base, and the like - having the ability to do device based activation in shared environments is absolutely critical.
Yeah, we are about to have to make a decision on this. We may just have to do away with Office on Mac machines.
is there any sign of device activation for Mac being enabled? this is paramount for lab and school environments

In a computer lab environment, this is crucial! We worked hard to let our staff and faculty use Office 365 Pro Plus, but now our labs are running a different version of Office. Not good.
