Tech/Engineering - IT (Information Technology) / Microsoft Office 12
English term or phrase: This metaphor
When users save a document with the current or previous versions of Microsoft Office, a single file is written to disk, which can then easily be opened subsequently. This metaphor is important to how documents are stored, managed and shared in practice. By wrapping the individual parts of an “Office 12” file in a ZIP container, documents will still remain a single file instance. The use of a single package file to represent the entity of a single document means users will have the same experience that they do today when saving and opening documents with “Office 12.”
