MS Office 2013 will run on Win7 and Win8/8.1.  I was able to take my MS Office 2000 all the way to Vista but with the newer machines, I had to get MS Office 2013. Great suite of programs and ran rings around my Office 2000.

I have one old 16 bit DOS amateur program that will not run under the Win7 or Win8 Command line. But after a year, I've learned to live without it. I still have my Vista machines that run very well, so if I need this old program, I can run it on them.

Just install DOSBox.  You will be able to run your old DOS programs.  It is available for Windows, OS X, Linux, BSD, and other OSes.  Works great on my Windows 8.1 system as well as my MAC and Linux machines.  It runs all the old DOS programs I have tried perfectly.  You can even set the emulated clock speed for games and such.

If it wasn't for arduino/gemma requirements, my newest computer would have linux on it, Not Windows 8.1.

As for old computers, my desktop is Vista. And I have 5 Amiga computers I'm going to work on next year and get working. I prefer their advantages over the Windows computer advantages. If I had to keep a Windows computer, I prefer XP, But I don't have one.

On a computer forum I hang out on, the word is that MS is going from Win 8.1 to Win 10, skipping Win 9.

I'm running Win 10 now on my Surface Pro 3. Works fine.

OLD News.

Microsoft Windows 10 -- Technical Preview (ISO files)
Download the ISO, burn to USB stick or DVD ....
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/preview-iso

Highly suggest you install on a blank hard drive (not to your current OS and files).
Expectation for public release is 3rd quarter 2015.
