I see that the software you listed generally appears to be very old........Daniel Davis wrote:just about every program you're now using will have to be "upgraded" or...worse yet...you'll have to buy new ones.

On the other hand, it would run fine in a VM. As for me, i've upgraded from XP to windows 7 on all my computers with absolutely no software problems.(only one touchpad driver issue but that was fixed now)

Also, Word '97!? Not only are you going to run into compatibility problems opening newer documents, but you're opening yourself to numerous vulnerabilities, as Office 97 hasn't received maintenance updates in years. This will soon be the case for Office 03 as well, so you're best off using either 07 or 2010. You can get the Product Key Card version of Office Home & Student 2010 for $99 at most retailers. (I know this is for certain the case at Staples where I work, some retailers may still have it at $119).
