Which Microsoft Word?
97 does run on XP, but with small issues. If you need a Word workalike, go get http://www.openoffice.org It's what I use.
I have an HP desktop with XP media and my girlfriend can't run her Microsoft word on it. We have been wanting to buy a notebook but were wondering if it would have the same problems. What operating systems will run microsoft word and are there any affordable good notebooks that have that system already installed? Is there a way to install it on my computer as well?
