    Alright, hello to all and any that care to venture. Yes I'm new...I'm a "switcher" about a week old and I ooze with ignorance. Nonetheless, I did do a search and did not find the answer(s) I needed, not even on Codeweavers. So I apologize if this has been addressed.

    Anyhow, I just downloaded Crossover and uploaded my Office 2000 disc... at first try it all seems fine so far (MS Project 03 as well).

    Here it goes; is there any need for me to download any Office 2000 service packs in support of my upload with Crossover?

    LMK, thanks

    Unless there is a specific reason for Office 2000, I highly recommend NeoOffice :)

    Unless the services packs offer new features I'd say no.

    I can't wait for Office 2008.

    I like Off 2000 premium and there was no need for me to ditch it :)

    ... I kinda like to spend out of need... not all of the time... but most of the time... that's why I'm-a-switcher ;-)

    went there and did consider it but got cold feet... don't remember why now, but I get a feeling it was cold feet, not sure. I normally try to triangulate my info/rational... so I may have to revisit, but I'm on another track for now ;)

    Its free, so there's no downside...its MUCH nicer than Office 2000 :)

    I think the cold feet may have been due to the dreadful site look, thats what you get from a run-by-two open-source app...

    Well there's certainly no real reason to have cold feet on freeware. It's just as easy to delete as it is to install it. So you can really lose with NeoOffice. I use to use NeoOffice and liked it but now I am using iWork 08.
