Microsoft Office upgrade.....

Thu, 06 Oct 2011

I finally took the plunge and upgraded Microsoft Office. Having used Office97 for.... well the best part of 14 years its time to retire it. The single document interface causes some problems along with the lack of proper DOCX file compatability. Perhaps the nail in the coffin was the purchase of the rather used Acer C112 DLP pico projector. This comes with some slightly archaic software to convert PPT files to a series of animated JPGs for onboard playback.... it only works on later versions of Office.

So my brand new version of Office 2003 arrived in the post and is now freshly installed. Yup, Office 2003 is just fine. None of the crap of newer versions, has a multiple document interface and is just a bit more refined than Office97. See if I can make this last 14 years!

In case you ever fancied upgrading to the 21st Century version, this little program layers the '03 skin over Office '07 or '10! Tried and tested!
