The Starter Edition, simplified version of Microsoft's Windows operating system and Office's applications, closed 2005 with 300,000 copies sold. This is an estimate based on figures from May (when the software was launched) and November, when the licenses had surpassed 250,000 copies. According to Microsoft of Brazil, one of the factors that contributed to this result were the actions against piracy, which fell to 65% in 2005.
