According to the latest years, Windows is still the most desirable system in traditional computer fields with over 50% market share. To some extent, the success of Windows can contribute to the great success of Microsoft Office. Nowadays, people are using Microsoft for commercial or person purposes.

Without Microsoft Office, life will turn to be wired.
