Ordinarily I wouldn't list anything that's exclusively Microsoft-compatible - I never use Microsoft software. It's not that it's bad or anything, I just greatly prefer Linux. For one, almost everything about or for Linux is free. Microsoft software is not free. I think it's easy to see why I'd rather pay nothing for what I prefer, than pay lots for things I don't prefer. You may prefer to pay money for Microsoft software and even more money for things that run on Microsoft operating systems. If you do, that's your business. I personally prefer to spend my money on hardware upgrades instead of site-licenses. But suit yourself, if you've got money to spare.

Amazingly, the vast majority of PC users and even many Apple Mac (tm, Apple) users prefer to spend money on Microsoft and Microsoft-compatible software, and so at last here is this page.

Microsoft-Compatible Software

Very Useful Software
