It's not just Windows that needs security updates, the last version of Office without the Ribbon will come to an end in a couple of years
Having listened to reader comments since Office 2007, it's been very clear that the Ribbon is not very popular. While I rather like it, I certainly recognise that it is quite a shock the first time you seen it and takes some getting used to.
So it probably won't make me that popular to point out that support for the last version of Office not to include the Ribbon, Office 2003, ends at the same time as Windows XP, in 2014.
There hasn't been a good way to revert Office 2007 or 2010 to the old style menus. That leaves Open Office or Libre Office if you don't want to make the switch.
Will you upgrade, keep using Office 2003 without security updates or move to Libre/Open Office?
