Re: Bring back Windows XP and Word 2003

XP certainly made more malloc memory available to an application than did W98.

Unfortunately XP would often cough and give up while copying very large numbers of files to a backup disk - W7 fixed that.

When did the much increased number of allowed Excel rows come into play? My feeling is that Office 2007 was that transition.

My current application base is W7 and Office 2010 - the latter I suspect only because I didn't stock up on 2007 licences before its EOL. Have a few spare W7 licences but anticipate that M$ will make it impossible to use them on newer hardware when the current motherboard and its spare die.

Need to find time out from the alligator swamp to migrate the application to Linux Mint and Libre Office
