Microsoft Office 2000 is a release of Microsoft Office, an office suite for Microsoft Windows family of operating systems. It succeeded Microsoft Office 97 and preceded Microsoft Office XP. It comes in five different editions, the most comprehensive of which is Office 2000 Developer.
Microsoft Office 2000 was designed as a fully 32-bit suite of software developed with year 2000 problem in mind. All the Office 2000 applications support Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) which allows moving data automatically between various programs.
Office 2000 was released to manufacturing without product activation protection, although after the release of Service Release 1, updated retail editions of Office 2000 with product activation were sold in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Hong Kong, New Zealand and the United States. They required the user to activate the product via the Internet.
Office 2000 was the first version of Office to use Windows Installer technology. This allowed service packs to be slipstreamed into the original installation files. The first update was called Service Release 1 (SR-1). Subsequent updates were called service packs. Service Pack 3 was the last service pack.
Five different editions of Office 2000 were available:
|Office programs||Standard||Small Business||Professional||Premium||Developer|
|Small Business Tools||No||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Developer Tools and SDK||No||No||No||No||Yes|
Microsoft Office 2000 Personal was a SKU solely designed for the Japanese market, including Word 2000, Excel 2000 and Outlook 2000. This compilation would later become widespread as Microsoft Office 2003 Basic.
Microsoft Office 2000 had three easter eggs. Microsoft Excel contained a hidden game called Dev Hunter; Microsoft Access had a hidden 8 ball toy; and Microsoft Word had team development credits.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
