Who and how shipped which IME when and where?

The question seemed almost deceptively easy:

Please help me with the location from where I can download Microsoft IME Standard 2003 for Windows. I have located the Microsoft Office IME 2003 [here], but could not find the IME 2003 for Windows.

Actually, the Office and Windows IMEs are very closely related, and there are not going to always be downloads for them.

Like in this case.

Here is the big list that as colleague over in support was able to provide:

This seemed like a very handy list to have, so I figured it would make sense to put it in a blog -- that way next time the question comes up I'll remember it. :-)

I forgot to ask: is this post title a deliberate allusion to "Who dragged whom how many times at the wheels of what round the walls of where?"

Yes it was. I wondered if anyone would get that one! :-)

i got questions, why are there diff versions of IME exist between OS and office??  why can't they make like united IME for all programs?

It is different versions of the same IME -- each product ships a later version so that the team can get the latest features to users!
