Microsoft Word celebrates a quarter of century. In October 83, the first version of the Word program (which was to become later synonymous with the processing of text) was launched. It had a hesitant start, not imposed but several years later, and in recent years criticized because it has a lot of menus that are useless. Word was launched for Xenix systems and Ms-Dos. Two years later, Word was brought on Apple's Macintosh computers, whose sales have increased significantly after this movement. What do you think about the evolution of Microsoft Word? How do you think, or hope that this program will evolve in the years to come?

Hi. Don't know about the future, but the past is surely gorgeous for the birthday software. It is definitely one of the most widely used office application all over the world and that takes something special. Microsoft's name definitely helps though.

I use openoffice swriter, much better than that lazy old lagging thing of a microsoft Word. Openoffice is free, got all programs you have like microsoft but in an other style, which is more modern. I hate Word =.=
