ADMIN: Re: [jaws-users] Can Ofice 2019 home business be installed on a windows 8.1-64 computer?

Okay, the debate over the operating system has gone far enough,
and it doesn't match the subject line anyway.
Let's move on!

I think it makes no sense to go to 10.

Still, it makes no sense to upgrade from windows 7 to 8, or 8.1.

Windows 8 was a flop, like Vista was, but they came out with 8.1 and shortly
after windows 10, and that is why there was a small market penetration.

Vista became pretty good after Microsoft's fixes, but most people went into
7 by then.

Not many, that's why it didn't last in the market; never had the penetration
of Windows 7 or 10; and since mainstream support already ended over a year
ago, and extended supports ends in 2023, you're better off just biting the
bullet and going with Windows 10.



I know of no good reason why anybody would opt to upgrade to Windows 8
instead of going straight to 10.



If you are still using accessibility like Jaws or another screen-reader, you
can still do it for free.

There are others who would disagree.

I would skip 8, it was not a good version.

I'm going to upgrade to 8 before 10, which may never happen if I'm lucky.

Smile, I didn't think there were any windows 8 users left.

Hello all,



As subject say does ofice 20019 home business work in windows 8.1? I am a
bit confused, because I read in the requirements that it worked on windows
10, but still I might have misunderstood; so I thought I might ask to see if
any of you has it on windows 8.



Thank you in advance.



Regards,



Teresa Arroyo
