Office 2003 Expired
Sending tweets, taking photos on your cell phone and renting videos online did not exist in 2003, but Microsoft Office 2003 did. Now, you can tweet, easily snap pictures from your mobile device and binge watch whole TV seasons on Netflix. You can also take full advantage of cloud computing with Office 365.
On April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer support Office 2003. The software will still work, but it’s not recommended to use unsupported software.
“As much as the world has shifted culturally over the past decade, technology, undoubtedly, has changed the most dramatically. Over ten years ago we introduced Office 2003 into the market, and at the time it was on the cutting edge of productivity — it sported a new Office logo, gave birth to OneNote and had a new look and feel that excited our customers. But Office 2003 no longer meets the needs of the way we work, play and live today. For this reason, it is time to say farewell to Office 2003 and embrace the productivity solution of today — Office 365”, says the Office Team.
The team also explains, “with Office 365, creating files is just the tip of the iceberg. You can now share and collaborate with family members in real-time. Whether you’re using free Skype world minutes to call your cousin in Italy or co-authoring with your family to create the perfect PowerPoint for grandma’s birthday, one thing is clear, the Office of today is the most expansive and capable of any version in our history. You can also share your Office 365 account with up to five other people – making it a breeze to store all of your vacation photos in the cloud to instantly share your memories amongst your circle of friends and family”.
Although you may not want to have to pay for your software on a monthly basis, the features of Office 365 make it a no-brainer to upgrade.
