That new Word 7 (on Windows 2010)

Just like “Office Vista” and “Windows 2007” before it, it was only a matter of time before someone asked me about “that new Word 7” I installed on their “Windows 2010” workstation.

I’m still working on getting Windows 2010 installed, but for those that want it, I am now happy to report that I can install Word 7 on their computer right away! For those who haven’t had a chance to see Office 7 yet, here it is running on my Windows 7 x64 workstation in the office:

Word 7 (a.k.a. Word 95)

I've got your 'Word 7' right here...

This is why the first slide in every Office training presentation I give explains what Windows is and what Office is.

    This made me laugh yet again. It never ceases to amaze me how people muddle up names so badly. I have this problem at work where people muddle up Office XP and 2003, even though we no longer use them.

    I suppose the most amazing fact is that people seem to want to stay blissfully ignorant. They almost seem to take a child like pleasure in blaming a computer for errors. Ask them about an error message and they can never tell you what it was.
