One of the most widely used office suites are set to be retired this month. Microsoft Office is probably the top office suite used world wide. At least the top amongst Windows users. At the moment it is sitting in and extended support phase.

On April 8 2009 Microsoft is set to completely retire Office 2003. Microsoft have said that they will no longer offer any upgrades for Office 2003. The only grace that you might have is in the area of security and bug patches. Microsoft has said that they will only release security and bug patches to registered users as and when needed. Companies that have lasting technical support agreements in place with Microsoft will get special treatment with upgrades when needed. But this is not set to be long lasting.

The last time that Office 2003 was updated was in September 2007 when the Microsoft released Service Pack 3. Microsoft have also said that they intend to put Windows XP into enter extended support on April 14, 2009, meaning Microsoft will no longer offer mainstream support for its most successful operating system. Microsoft lastly updated XP on April 21, 2008 with Service Pack 3.
