Who is ready? What law firm will take it on?
What state attorney-general will become famous?

Wait a bit. Microsoft will update MicrosoftOffice so it won't run on xp and
perhaps crashes all to xp's. They must sell new os to stay in business.

masonc,

Microsoft will update MicrosoftOffice so it won't run on xp


Well, that can be, and probably is, a natural effect of solving problems in
regard to the OSes they currently support, while disregarding OSes they do
not support anymore (read: not bothering to test for them).

That you dislike that because it does not benefit you and are trying to put
such effects forward as willfull interfering of MS is your problem, not
theirs.

They must sell new os to stay in business.


Very true. But nonwithstanding that you pretty-much demand they keep
supporting your aging OS from which, from the moment it was brought out, was
known how long it would live. Nonetheless you now have stuck your head
into the sand and refuse to have that true.

Also, you payed a small lump sum when you bought the OS. Do you *really*
think that gives you the right to perpetual support and upgrades ? What
would MS live of than ? How would it survive ? (would you support your
own work the same way ?)

There is a simple solution to your "they will break my OS" problems: just
switch off those automatic updates from MS.

And there are some other methods that can help you not to get bitten by that
evil MS cooporation (which you are no doubt still suckling your updates from
at no charge), but I think its time you spend some effort into finding them
yourself (using Google perhaps ?).

In short: stop sounding like an entitled kid, and *do* something. And do
it *yourself*.
