Why I use Word 2000:

I use ‘Word 2000 Professional’, because; I’ve bought and paid for a licence, for its use, and it also does everything I’ll ever need.

Enter Word 2003: Sigh! – It’s OK, a bit flashily, but essentially all right, but I’ve stopped using it.

I’ve got fed up with the reinstall process in Word 2003, and begging Microsoft for a new license every time it crashes. I’ve apparently exceeded my on line install license?

Here’s how it goes.  

In the last two years I’ve had to reformat my XP machine 5 times because of on line virus infections and two dammed ‘Root-kits’ that were installed, by the variabilities; in the web Browser ‘IE’ versions -> ‘6’ to ‘7’ : It’s only ‘8’, that seems to be robust enough. 

I was, and still am! – Using the latest versions of AVG: Spybot Search-and-Destroy, with its Tea-timer add on: I’m also using a 3rd party Firewall from behind my Network Router, but still the viruses got installed.

Once they are in, the swines are almost impossible to remove, to such a degree that I’ve had to reinstall my OS; four times in 2010 alone and once in 2009. Touch wood! – This year: It’s only been on one other machine on the Network what was affected and that was because something rolled the system right back to IE 6: What the flip! goes on with these web sites? And Yes! It needed a re-install as well: 

I’m now using Firefox 5.0 as my default browser, but some web sites will only accept IE! (Sigh!)

Now every time you re-install Word 2003 you apparently use up an on line licence – I’ve bought and paid for a license from Microsoft to use Word 2003, and basically can’t use it! 

So to hell with them, and that’s why I’m sticking with Word 2000:
