    Abbott and Costello meet the 21st century.

    Ultimate SuperDuper Computer Store. Can I help you?

    Thanks. I'm setting up a home office in the den, and I'm thinking of buying a computer.

    Mac?

    No, the name is Bud.

    Your computer?

    I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.

    Mac?

    I told you, my name is Bud.

    What about Windows?

    Why? Does it get stuffy?

    Do you want a computer with Windows?

    I don't know. What do I see when I look out the windows?

    Wallpaper.

    Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.

    Software that runs on Windows?

    No, on the computer! I need something I can use to write proposals, track expenses. You know, run a business. What have you got?

    Office.

    Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?

    I just did.

    You just did what?

    Recommended something.

    You recommended something?

    Yes.

    For my office?

    Yes.

    Okay, what did you recommend for my office?

    Office.

    Yes, for my office.

    Office for Windows.

    I already have an office and it already has windows! Let's say I'm sitting at my computer, and I want to type a proposal. What do I need?

    Word.

    If I'm writing a proposal, I'm going to need lots of words. But what program do I load?

    Word.

    What word?

    The Word in Office.

    The only word in office is office.

    The Word in Office for Windows.

    Which word in "office for windows?"

    The Word you get when you click the blue W.

    I'm going to click your big W if you don't give me a straight answer. Let's forget about words for a minute. What do I need if I want to watch a movie over the Internet?

    RealOne.

    Maybe a real movie, maybe a cartoon. What I watch is none of your business. But what do I need to watch it?

    RealOne.

    If it's a long movie I'll also want to watch reels two, three and four. Can I watch reel four?

    Of course.

    Great! With what?

    RealOne.

    Okay, so I'm sitting at my computer and I want to watch a movie. What do I do?

    You click the blue 1.

    I click the blue one what?

    The blue 1.

    Is that different from the blue W?

    Of course it is. The blue 1 is RealOne. The blue W is Word.

    What word?

    The Word in Office for Windows.

    But there's three words in "office for windows!"

    No, just one. But it's the most popular Word in the world.

    It is?

    Yes, although to be fair there aren't many other Words left. It pretty much wiped out all the other Words.

    And that word is the real one?

    No. RealOne has nothing to do with Word. RealOne isn't even part of Office.
