Businesses caught in the middle of Microsoft patent fight

That's not where any business wants to be.

The long short of it is that due to a last year's ruling in the U.S. District Court of Orange County California, Microsoft has been forced to issue new versions of Office 2003 and Office XP.

Patent spat forces businesses to upgrade Office

Existing customers can keep using older versions of Office on their current desktops, but any new installations of Office 2003 will require
Service Pack 2. Office XP will need a special patch for new installations.

Don't be surprised if you receive an e-mail from Microsoft soon, as the company has indicated that all customers will have been informed by next month.

Good thing for us that Bill Gates and Company are scheduled to release their new version of Office later this year...
