    Word 95, time for a Eulogy? (Word 95)

    Other than the obvious differences in macro capabilities, robustness,
    maintainability vis a vis VBA, what does one lose by running Word 95?

    1. Is Word 95 supported by the newer OS?
    2. Does using Word 95 restrict the version of other software that may be
    used, e.g.:
    a. IE
    b. Norton Antivirus
    c. Acrobat
    d. Others?

    I think that the time has come to write a eulogy for pre-VBA versions of Word.

    I think Word95 was more or less just Word6 with support for long file names. Definitely time to let it rest in peace and, if possible, to recycle any remaining brain cells committed to Word95 to something new.

    Word 96 was a bit more than Word 6, e.g., it supported features in Office 95 not in Office 4 and was far more robust than Word 6.

    I'm trying to fing out what software may conflict with Word 95. My feeling is that if one gets mired in Word 95, then one is forever stuck using older versions of, say, IE, Acrobat and NAV, to mention a few.
