    Does Office 2000 work with Win XP Pro? (Win XP Pro)

    I have just gotten a new home pc with Win XP/Professional. I would like to get Office Professional for my home pc. At work we have Office 2000 so I would like to get that for my home machine to be consistent. (I'm also hoping that if it's available it may be a lot cheaper than the newer versions???)
    1) First, will Office 2000 install and work with Win XP/Pro?
    2) If so, does anyone know is Office 2000 (full ver, not upgrade) still even available for sale anywhere and if so where?? (I have looked at various web sites such as Dell, etc but can't find it anywhere).
    3) Also what is the cheapest place to buy MS-Office Pro (any ver)? I think Woody has covered this subject in past newsletters but I can't find it. It seems like he mentioned a web site to check for getting the most reasonable price for office (a legit copy of course).

    1) I think this has been confirmed either here or on the Windows XP board by others
    2) Try Atomic Park; I purchased from them a couple years back. PriceGrabber undoubtedly will list other, more obscure stores.
    3) See #2. Woody I believe has a relationship with http://www.cheaperoffice.com/, but I don't see Office 2000 there in a quick glance at the home page.

    Blaine,
    Here's the (short) thread about <!post=Office 2k and XP,318745>Office 2k and XP<!/post>*. Also, as late as August last year (2003!), in "Woody's Office 2003" Vol.1 No. 5 he called Office 2000 the Sweet Spot in Office versions. Good luck finding it, though!!

    Thanks a lot for this link. It'll be interesting for my perspective to see why Woody calls it the sweet spot. Finding Office 2K is not hard. It's on many sites including Pricegrabber and Pricewatch, Amazon, ect.
