Neither the Microsoft Office application suite, nor any of its
individual component applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access,
Outlook, etc.), have _ever_ been "part" of *any* Windows operating
system. They are, and always have been, separate applications, that
must be purchased and installed separately. Microsoft Office comes
pre-installed on new computers only when the computer manufacturer
chooses to offer it, and the purchaser is willing to pay extra for it.
