What is Office?

Another member of the Microsoft family explained.


Office, or in its full form, Microsoft Office, is one of Microsoft’s main products that offers programs such as Word, Excel and more.

This is an office suite, which means that the product is a family of different software services that help people do their work.

It was launched in November 1990, is available in 102 languages and is written in C++.

Unsurprisingly, it is mostly compatible with Microsoft’s Windows OS, however, versions of the software are available for Apple products and others.

You can find an in-depth look at what Office offers on the next page.
