Microsoft Celebrate 25 years of Office

A tribute to 25 years of Office users

Twenty-five years ago today, Microsoft launched Office, and ever since, Office has been helping people get things done in their work and personal lives. Of course the world is a very different place today than it was 25 years ago, and so is the way people work, but what is constant is how Office has evolved to help people work in new ways, to be more productive and focus on what truly matters. Today, Office apps and services—from the traditional ones like Word, PowerPoint and Excel, to newer experiences like Office 365, Office Online, OneNote and OneDrive—are designed for the modern ways in which people work, delivering ever more personalized experiences, and helping people be productive from wherever they are and on any device.
