Only plebs use Office 2019 over Office 365, says Microsoft's weird new ad campaign

Re: Office 2003

I'd be happy to still be using 2003, but I have to keep pace with what is currently deployed in the various businesses I work/worked for. Hence I'm on 2013 with little sign of that changing.

Quite a lot of spreadsheets and VBA coding prop up some ailing legacy systems, and slavishly following the Office iterations would result in several multi-billion pound organisations collapsing into nothingness.

365 would in all effect, be the equivalent of installing a random virus on every machine on a regular basis.

We all know how well Microsoft's compatibility feature works with its own products, so what chance has our in-house software workarounds got?
