Default how do I buy word 97

Can somone tell me where I can buy a copy of Microsoft Word for Win98SE
(Word 97?). I've looked thru thr Microsoft website and spent an hour running
around in circles. If Microsoft is forcing user to upgrade to later os and no
longer supports it for
that reason, does anyone know an computer supply store or such where I can
but it??

It's an OOOOOOOOOOOOLD version. If you could find it, it would be on
something like eBay and I *never* recommend anyone buy software that way.

If you have Windows 98SE, you could run Office XP. Even tho it's an older
version, you'll probably have a bit easier time locating a copy of that.

And if you need only Word, you can get Word 2002 (which will run on Windows
98SE) as part of Works Suite (see

I keep forgetting that. And it's a great way to get Word 2002 at a great
price too.

Although JoAnn wisely urges caution you can buy legit. copies of Office 97
and 2000 (go for the latter) from rummage sales and eBay. If funds are
limited I see no problem with buying from eBay provided you are aware of the
potential for buying pirate software.
