Office 2019 Will Only Run On Windows 10 Says Microsoft

Microsoft on Thursday served up a new support document that references Office 2019, in which it revealed that the apps will only run on Windows 10. Which is a great way for Microsoft to force you off Windows 7 or 8.1, or even Vista and XP if you’re still running those for whatever reason. Because if you want to ensure that you can open and save documents with minimal hassle, you need to be on the latest version of office. Which in turn means you need Windows 10.

You have to admit that this is a pretty crafty move by Microsoft. But if you don’t want to upgrade to Windows 10, there’s always LibreOffice which includes a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation package, and a database. And it’s free.
