Well, I think that depends on what you see as an "Office" application. It's 
either "Something equivalent to Microsoft Office" or "something used in day 
to day office work". I somewhat favour the latter. It's clearly not 
"Graphics", and "Utilities" is so unspecific that it's just used as a dumping 
ground for about anything that has no other place to go. Hence the mess. 
Therefore I think it should definitely go into 'Office'

From the 'Handbook of Corporate Slang':

- to protect prior investment (phrase):
    describes the inability to revert a wrong decision made
    in the past, expresses willingness of throwing 
    good money after bad. (q.v. Fiorina, C.)
