    I was considering upgrading to W8Pro from 7 but note MSOffice and components do NOT work in it. What’s the reasoning behind that? Something ELSE to buy from MicroSoft? I’m disappointed as most all my documents are constructed and saved in Word.

    Apologies I’ve just noticed your post here.

    The infogram that is used within the article is incorrect. I’ve had Office 2010, 2013 & Office 365 running without issue on a system with Win8 Pro installed.

    Though as they say, MSOffice (x86 &x 64) will NOT run upon Win8RT (tablet version)

    Hope this helps
