Lived free and died hard
I wish to complain about this Norweigan XP what I purchased not five years ago from this very Website.
What's wrong! E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-OPERATING SYSTEM!!
Seriously, people (and with apologies to Monty Python and their Dead Parrot), I know 37 percent of you who are now using XP plan to keep using it. I also know some of you are planning on how to keep using XP "safely," even though Microsoft is no longer supporting it.
Stop. XP is dead. Yes, like a zombie, you could keep it going but every day you do you're just asking for more trouble. You have watched The Walking Dead right?
There no Word to describe it
You know what other wildly popular program is now pushing up the daisies? Office 2003. I understand how you still want to use. I really do. You've used it for ages, you hated the newer ribbon interface, and—darn it! — it just works.
All that said, here's the problem: Hackers are now much more likely to come at you through old applications than they are through operating systems these days. () That means you can expect to see Office 2003 specific malware-infected Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint Presentations anytime now.
If you love the look and feel of Office 2003, I suggest you give the free LibreOffice a try. It looks and feels a lot like Office 2003 and the bad macros and the like that would zap Office 2003 will bounce off it.
