On September 29, 1983, Microsoft released its first software application, famously known as Microsoft Word 1. 0. Over time, Word has become a cornerstone for Microsoft and is the prize product of the Microsoft Office Suite application.

Show off your Microsoft knowledge by telling us what magazine featured a demo version of Word, marking the first time a floppy disk was included in a magazine. We’ll dish out 300 Knowledge Points to the first person with the right answer.
