Mi­crosoft Of­fice has been a suc­cess for 25 years

The ubiq­ui­tous soft­ware nearly ev­ery­one uses.

2018 saw the Win­dows op­er­at­ing sys­tem turn 30, while the Of­fice suite cel­e­brated its 25th birthday. Even to­day, Mi­crosoft Of­fice re­mains the most pop­u­lar pro­duc­tiv­ity suite, with an es­ti­mated one bil­lion ma­chines cur­rently run­ning it. With the launch of Of­fice 365 in 2011, Mi­crosoft ex­panded the suite from the stan­dard desk­top ap­pli­ca­tions into a cloud plat­form, in­te­grat­ing a va­ri­ety of ap­pli­ca­tions and be­com­ing Mi­crosoft’s cash cow. The early ver­sion of Of­fice was a clunky and pricey op­tion, but has evolved into a highly in­te­grated plat­form that runs not just on Win­dows but on OS X, iOS and An­droid.
