I have a lot of important files in Word 2003. I'm going to buy a new computer, but have learned that Word 2003 is not compatible with Windows 8, in fact Windows 8 doesn't even have Word. There is something called Office 365 that includes a version of Word, but you have to pay $99 a year for it. Is that what I have to do, or does Windows 8 have anything that Word docs can be converted to? Someone posted somewhere online to get OpenOffice, which is free. I don't know what OpenOffice is and whether it will take my files. I also have some important files in Notepad. What will I have to do with those in Windows 8?
