The Microsoft Publisher is, as can be gleaned from the name, is a desktop publishing application specifically targeted as an entry level software that fulfills nearly the same purpose as Microsoft Word, its more full-featured cousin. However, while Microsoft Word concerns itself with text input tools and proofreading, the Microsoft Publisher is more concerned with page layout and how the output looks like as a final product. Unlike other Microsoft Office products, there are no Microsoft Publisher versions for Mac; this program is strictly for Windows only.
Microsoft Publisher is also a part of the Microsoft Office line, although it is only available for higher-end Microsoft Office editions. This is so that Publisher can be used as an alternative – a far simpler, lighter and faster alternative, at that – for heavy and CPU-intensive flagship Office products, like Microsoft Word. Publisher has also a devoted user base, mostly catering to small businesses that do not have such resources to procure the more expensive mainstream editions of Office and its desktop publishing tools. Although having less of a market share in the desktop publishing industry as Adobe’s InDesign, which is historically trailing Word in this regard, Publisher is still regarded as a significant player in the field.
