Don't worry about Microsoft. They dabble in a business model where Windows is
given away  almost for free. As for their shareholders, well... that's another

Some Windows sub-notebooks actually come with StarOffice. But... I'm not sure
Microsoft is too thrilled about it. It harms their most profitable monopoly.
