Microsoft Office 3.x
Category: Abandoned Office versions
Microsoft Office is a suite of office applications from Microsoft. This includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and newer versions of Mail, Office Manager and Outlook. The "1.x" versions of Microsoft Office were simply a marketing package including stand-alone products sold together without other package changes. Although they were separate applications and not one monolithic program, they had a similar user interface that was well integrated with each other.

MS Office was initially released on Macintosh, but quickly became a de facto office package for Windows 3.x. Microsoft Office competed with many other office packages, including Lotus Smartsuite, Borland / WordPerfect / Corel Office and Star Office.

Microsoft Office 92 (owned by Microsoft Office 3.0) - one of the first Office packages. It was released on DOS and Windows platforms. Some of the programs that were introduced to the package were created much earlier, because in the 80s the official successor of Office 92 was Microsoft Office 4.0.

Microsoft Office 92 is a marketing name added in the much later period of sale of the package, which debuted on international markets as Microsoft Office 3.0.
