I have yet to figure out why some people think that "Windows" and "Office" are the same thing. Often, when I quote a customer for a computer, they ask for something with Windows on it. I also ask if they need Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, etc), to which they reply they need only Windows.
Which is what I provide.
A day later (sometimes sooner), they give me the third-degree because they can't do typing or spreadsheets, and then complain when they need to spend additional money to get Office. They just don't understand that "Microsoft Windows" is an Operating System, and "Microsoft Office" is an Application Suite, sold seperately...
P.S. KarlNooks, nothing against you, but I just wanted to highlight a point, since you mentioned DOCX and Windows 7...
