Here's a good background article on Office 365 that you might find interesting.

Microsoft Office 365
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Office_365

"Office 365 is a subscription-based service which offers access to various services and software built around the Microsoft Office platform.

Serving as a successor to Microsoft's Business Online Productivity Suite, it first included hosted versions of Exchange, Lync, SharePoint, Office Web Apps, along with access to the Microsoft Office 2010 desktop applications on the Enterprise plan. With the release of Office 2013, Office 365 expanded to include new plans aimed at different types of businesses, along with a new plan aimed at home users.[2]

After a beta testing process which began in October 2010, Office 365 was officially launched on June 28, 2011.[3]"

It's more or less the same, I think, but Windows 8 has some additional features. You can install Office 2013 and link it to Skydrive Pro.
