Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Spin up a VM, install Windows XP and Office XP, and see how you like it
If you do, bully for you! Also, sucks to be you, because that world is gone.
New Don't have to, I'll just boot up my old Thinkpad T510.
Windows 7 and Office... Uh, can't recall, whatever was current in ~2011, I suppose. (Unfortunately that already had the fucking Ribbon, IIRC.) Even W7 could be persuaded to present almost exactly the good old W95/NT4/W2K interface, so mine of course does.

As for "sucks to be you, because that world is gone" -- I'm not so sure. AIUI at least KDE, and possibly a few other Linux DEs, can be set up to look reasonably sane. And worst case, Haiku, ReactOS, Serenity... Or, hey, I hear OS/2 and Amiga are still around in some form! :-) (Though UI-wise that would probably be ReactOS, Serenity, and OS/2 for me; maybe less so Haiku and Amiga.)

New Hang on…
…are you saying that this is the Year Of Linux On The Desktop?
New And if it is ...
If the only reason to run Linux is because you can still make it look like Windows 95, I guess you can call that "winning".

New Of course. Aren't they all?
Just saying, if that's how far I'll have to go, then that's how far I'll go.
