I have seen several comments and received several questions around Office 2007 and Windows Vista and whether you need Windows Vista in order to install and run Microsoft Office 2007. The answer is, No, you do not need to be running Windows Vista in order to install and use Office 2007. If you look at the Microsoft Office 2007 system requirements, you will see that the required Operating Systems state:
“Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack (SP) 2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, or later operating system”
So, yes, your clients running Windows XP can take advantage of Office 2007 today.
Thank you and have a wonderful day,
