ImageThis time a double-win.

Not so long ago trying to run a whole office suite was almost a dream. Just launching an app was a success.There was just one complex suite almost working: "SoftMaker Office 2008". A nice, and mostly unknown, Microsoft Office clone. It was such a good Office clone that it is closed and non-free.

From past experience you can find two kind of users out there: "Pro-open source" users asking for LibreOffice and OpenOffice support, and "Pro-Office" users asking for Microsoft Office.  Well, there is a third kind which wants everything running on ReactOS: "Alike-Me" users.

Step by step, improvement by improvement, and bug by bug, ReactOS is now able to run Microsoft Office 2003 in a decent state.

This video, created by Yaroslaw Denisov, shows how Office 2003 works on ReactOS.

Obviously, there is a lot of work to be done like polishing the visual glitches, discovering potential hangs,and so on,but being able to run a complex app is a nice step forward.

But Yaroslaw wasn't the first one to discover that Office 2003 works in ReactOS. Seems GTASАnek was really the first one. At that time Office 2003 was running, but the usability was not as good as it is nowadays.

Maybe it's time to begin checking newer MS Office versions. Great and special thanks to Yaroslaw Denisov and GTASАnek because their testing time.

Who knows what other surprises are still hidden in ReactOS?

    MS Office 2003 is best it is easy to operate. it is simply cheap and unique but Microsoft Office 2003 is not working shows the error named Not responding in newer Windows 10 operating system. It is too old and not compatible with newer machines like Windows 8, 10. I was going to the newer version of MS Office 2013 64-bit it is compatible with my Window 10. If you have any issue with your Office, PowerPoint, Exel, Outlook and any other plugins follow the Microsoft Office Support here you can fix your any kind of error related to Microsoft Office.

    I really like MS Office 2003, It was classy, easy to understand and not so complicated. I didn't need any third-party software or duplicate one. Microsoft has the original one which is far better than others.
    In my opinion, Currently, there is MS office 365 & 2019 both are good and very update. I wrote an article also about that on my blog which I made 5 years back and still hosting with A2 web hosting and I used A2 Hosting promo codes to get a huge discount like always. You can see that An original one is always good doesn't matter which thing you are choosing a web hosting or software.
