Using Application Software on the Network

In the pre-Windows days of the PC revolution, applications such as Lotus 1-2-3, dBASE, and WordPerfect were the primary productivity tools for business users of the PC. Over time, the single application has been displaced by the application suite, which provides an integrated group of applications that share a common interface.

Suite products, such as Microsoft Office, Sun’s StarOffice, and Corel’s WordPerfect Office, provide a word processor, spreadsheet, database, and variety of other applications (depending on the application suite you are using). Suite products also typically offer versions that run on different operating systems. Microsoft Office is available for both Windows and the Apple OS. StarOffice runs on Windows PCs as well as Unix and Linux workstations. WordPerfect Office provides multiple-platform support and is even available in a platform-independent Java-based version.
