Not to mention that MS probably is counting on employees working at businesses to whine for Office 2013 just because they think their employer should spend money on something the employees will never have the skill and knowledge to fully exploit anyway.

Oh, thank you KB for telling the people of the world that they are archaic and what they need to "bother" to do. You see that MS marketing decision as "a means to finally GIVE people the INCENTIVE NECESSARY.....that's MORE SUITABLE for the PRESENT.

Thank you so much for your rather presumptuous judgment re what people need. If you are not a current MS employee, I assume you once were.

Typical Microsoft. They owned the world, but never figured out how to manage it. So now they are losing control of their population. The Barbarians are at the Gates, and have breached the walls.

You either pay to play or else you go with what you know. That's your only choices.

I will make a simple comment and that is it. If I could afford everything that I wanted then I would not be riding glue factory horse! If someone wants to buy me the latest and the greatest then I am all for upgraded software! Otherwise quit picking on my glue factory horse!

LOL

All those "Museum Dwellers" really crack me up complaining that they can't put a shiny new $300 saddle on a glue factory horse.

If you have a computer running ME, you can be absolutely sure that Microsoft (along with the entire rest of the world) doesn't care. BTW, if you're trying to make a funny, use a smiley. It comes off like you really actually use ME in 2012!

re: Office 2013 Won't Run On Windows XP, Vista
I close a law office in 2009, and consequently have 5 computers running versions of XP (Home Edition, XP, and XP Professional). Not one of these computers have the system resources to run Windows 7 or Windows 8. Moreover, most people do not regard Windows 7 or Windows 8 as "upgrades" -- Windows 7 is a memory hog that should have been put out of its misery a long time ago.// I also have 1 computer running Windows Millennium Edition and a laptop running Windows 98 - I assume that Microsoft does not give a crap about users such as me. Right now, Apple is the only option for users who cannot stick with older (more reliable) computers. We don't need Microsoft's "upgrades" - Google Chrome and Norton do the job.
