Few computers can function without Microsoft office software.
It is common practice to have Word, Excel and PowerPoint programmes on our PC’s and few of us can function on a daily basis without these programmes. It makes no difference if you are a private user or a large company with multiple desktop computers, Microsoft is synonymous with everyday function.
What exactly is Microsoft Office? It is a programme which is not free and a commercial office suite which is inter-related to the application of many applications ranging from servers, laptops, services, and includes Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
Microsoft has been a part of our lives since 1989, with the term Microsoft being used to describe a bundle of set applications.
The first of these bundles consisted of Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and who does not know what these programmes are unless you are a Pygmy living in the Congo Rain Forests or a Nomadic traveller in the Desert?
Office applications have grown closer with features that are common, such as spelling check, OLE data integration as well as Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications with language scripting.
As of June 2009, Microsoft Office is used by at least 80% of businesses, and 64% of enterprises make use of Office 2007; these are indeed interesting statistics.
The most current version of Office 2010 for Windows, was released on the 15th of June 2010, and Office 2011 for Mac OS X was released in October of 2011.
