I currently have Windows XP and Microsoft office 2002. I am thinking of upgrading to something more recent.
As I write a lot of macros in my work and try to use a lot of the Microsoft products, I now need to think about upgrading to a more modern system on my home PC, both operating system and Office package.
I'm wondering what the best option for me will be as there has been a lot of versions come out since XP.
I don't want Vista because it's too heavy. I want to avoid Windows 8 because of it's connection to the cloud.. I've heard that this is a real pain in the neck. I'm thinking of Windows 7. Should I be looking at later.
I also want to upgrade Microsoft office. Should I use Office 7 or 8 ? Not sure which one to get there.. I just don't want to get trapped into having to buy a whole bunch of extra products to get full use out of them. I will be working in the Financial services so I will want something compatible. They tend to all use the same operating systems.
Any advice would be great..
