Activation headaches and one final update destroyed the usability of DW's Vaio PC, I forget now what Win it was, but in any case it was the last straw... Way too much "security" gaming, instead of fighting it, we left that world...

Still own/rent MS Office for Excel/Outlook/Word, but that's it...

Excel and Word from MS Office 2007 work just fine on Linux with PlayOnLinux. Access has to be installed in a separate emulated machine with some different settings. There's nothing else in Office that I care about.
