Yes, for the most part.  The problem's not with "commercial app"
or with "Microsoft something" but with mere ability to gain
physical access ASAP after having warm system with the data
needed in RAM.

It's at least impractical to install "Microsoft anything" as any
remainders of the data would be 100% wiped way before the point
of installing a "commercial app" there.  See, it's not even 10
minutes, and the temperature's not usually going to drop below
the floor in the process.

As folks tend to comment, "using thermorectal cryptoanalysis
[against the owner] seems more effective then"...
