Microsoft Microsoft showed its new 'Softgrid' technology today that allows apps to run as if they were inside a second copy of Windows. But unlike traditional virtualisation apps, there's no second Windows desktop getting in the way. For example, Microsoft showed Office 2003 and Office 2007 running side-by-side, even though they can't actually be installed on the same copy of Windows. Initially, the technology is for corporate users only, but it has huge obvious benefits for home users as well. First steps towards this?

Do you use Word 2003 and Word 2007 simultaneously?

Outlook is the application that cannot be installed from multiple versions of Office at the same time. The rest of the Office applications don't have this issue. When you install O2k7 along with O2k3, you have to either leave the 2k3 version or upgrade to Outlook 2k7.
