Microsoft confirmed yesterday that the new Office 2013 will not run on older PCs powered by Windows XP or Vista.
“The new Office will work with Windows 7 and Windows 8,” a Microsoft spokesperson said Monday in an email reply to questions about Office 2013 and Office 365. “Vista or XP will not support the new Office.”
The “Appleification” of Microsoft continues, gone are the days of eternal legacy support. Good for them, it’s annoying sometimes, but it’s the only way to move forward.
