    Msft should spin Office off

    Sun and Oracle dropped support for Star Office but still include it with the Solaris operating system.

    Then Star Office went to a open source development.

    And Word Perfect is available.

    Then Google developed a following for its office applications.

    So a lite version of MS Office has become just a necessary part of the operating system for consumers. But MS doesn't need to buy the product to add it to the operating system.

    Then MS puts silly ads into the consumer version. But desktop applications should not have ads but only webpages can have ads.

    But most companies still need the full version of MS Office.
