Microsoft Office 2000 is one of the earliest versions of the well-known office suite, released, contrary to its name, in mid-1999. This is the very first release of the "office" to use Windows Installer technology. Due to this, the office suite was able to "expand" through service packs. Microsoft has released three Service Pack for this version of the office, and after installing the last Microsoft Office 2000, it was almost as good as the functionality of its "follower" Microsoft Office XP. Also, in this version of the package, users for the first time saw the well-known electronic assistant-screper, which familiarized them with the capabilities of individual components and helped in the implementation of some operations. Version 2000 was the latest version to officially support Windows 95.
Other important innovations include support for OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) technology, which allowed data transfer between different programs and applications. According to the tradition of Microsoft Office 2000, it was distributed in several editions. Their composition, depending on the cost, included the following components: Word 2000, Outlook 2000, Excel 2000, PowerPoint 2000, Publisher 2000, Access 2000, FrontPage 2000, PhotoDraw 2000 and Small Business Tools.
