Which "people"?

The "people" who get it on the computers they buy (whether it's included or a quick "checkbox" add-on). The "people" who work at one of the companies that allow you to buy Office for $10.

Right now on Windows, less than 1 in 3 people have MS Office installed.

And this figure comes from ... ? Because the estimate I've seen (http://www.zdnet.com/blog/microsoft/about-that-1-billion-mic...) had it around 750M users a few years ago (granted, that figure comes from MSFT via second-hand info), which is over half the Windows PCs in the world.

Anecdotally, I know very few people who don't have Office installed on Windows. The ones who don't tend to be the more tech-savvy ones (i.e., the minority) who know they have alternatives.
