will version X of word work on Leopard?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
Hello all,

I own an older version of Office for Mac. Clicking word, it says version X Clicking Office it says version X.

It works fine with tiger. If I upgrade to leopard, will it still work?

I'd rather not to have to buy the newest 2008 version.

    I have it installed and working on a PowerBookG4 with Leopard.

    Not that I use it much, so I can't say I've tested it thoroughly...

    Also installed it recently on a MacBook Air and that seemed to be okay...

    Well, it was horribly slow, but that's what you come to expect from crusty old PPC carbon apps from Microsoft

    you know what?

    I found X to be faster than 2008 on my 2008 MBP.

    Good god. I'm not sure if that's funny or depressing. A universal binary working slower than a PPC app being emulated under Rosetta... Only Microsoft...
