What Is Office 2004?

Back in the 1980s, most personal computers were single-purpose machines that could run only one program at a time. So, a few software developers set out to create single programs that did many things. Programs such as Ashton-Tate Framework and Lotus Symphony combined word processors, spreadsheets, databases, graphics, and communication functions all in so-called integrated programs. They ran on the green-screen operating systems of the day.

Lotus developed a separate version of Symphony for the Mac; it was called Jazz.
