Office XP and Vista SP1 Users on Their Own

The more I ask about Office 2007 and 2010, the more I hear how you hate the Ribbon. I thought I was used to the Ribbon, but trying to do relatively simple tasks can still be more aggravating than babysitting a two-year old. Those that prefer old revs of Office, specifically Office XP, will have to support themselves or shell out some bucks and learn a new interface -- official support ends this month.

The same is true for Vista SP1, which is weird since this rev of the OS ain't that old. While most disdain Vista, if it works for you, it makes no sense to buy a Win 7 upgrade. The good news? You can download SP2!
