    Office 2007 and XP

    What is the downside to running Office 2007 on Windows XP Pro stations? And are any downsides preferable to installing Vista?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    There are no downsides, it acts exactly the same on XP or Vista.

    No problems whatsoever, make sure you uninstall office 2003 before you go ahead with 2007 or you may experience problems.

    We have been running Office 2007 for a good number of months now, recently with SP1 on clients running XP SP2, recently with SP3 and come across no problems whatsoever.
