I'm pretty sure "mainstream support" ended a few years ago. Quite what
that means seems very unclear.
It isn't that hard.
Full support means you can actually open support cases with MS and get
features and other regular issues fixed.
I challenge anyone to provide proof that they have ever been able to get
ANYTHING meaningful from this kind of support, MAYBE unless they are a
large multinational corporation or government customer.
Long term support means just critical/security updates.
I have many old files that are in old and unsupported formats. If just
forgot I had them stored and never "converted" them to the newer format[s].
I wonder when MS will stop supporting .doc files? I prefer to get these
from MS Office users, when I need to do some editing on it. I have not
owned a version of MS Office beyond 2003. I do not have it installed on
ANY of my Windows systems. I use LibreOffice now for my office needs -
