Editorial Do you depend on your computer for your living? If so, I'm sure you've thought long and hard about which hardware and software to use. I'd like to explain why I use generic "white boxes" running open source software. These give me a platform I rely on for 100% availability. They also provide a low-cost solution with excellent security and privacy.

I just wish Office 2003 wasn't completely broken on Win7 64bit. (why an MS product won't work on an MS OS.. I'll never understand) Can't buy winXP licenses, can't afford to migrent everyone to Office 2010 at the same time.. weeee.. fun.. every week starts with another "XYZ froze on me and I lost work" complaint.

Bit of a hack, but in Win7 can't you install it in XP Mode, and then use "unity"--vmware term, I forgot the MS one--to integrate it into the start menu like normal?

No XP Mode in Win8. ;)

I am running Office 2003 on Win 7 64 bit. I have zero issues. Honestly your post saying that Office is broken surprised me. What exactly is broken?
