But, I'll go away and think about it again.
I don't want to frighten you but the next blue screen of death or infinte loop or kernel panic is always
around the corner waiting for you to let your guard down
So put yourself in a position to not worry about it
To do that grab two goats, some black candles and draw a pentagram on the floor in salt (kosher or sea - it doesn't need to be ionised) and turn to the section in the Kitab al-Azif (I'm assuming you still have yours) on cloud backups (I think it's under the heading off That is not dead which can eternal lie.
) and see how you get on
Alternatively, make sure all the stuff you care about is backed up/copied on to something outside the laptop (USB or cloud or kid velum - whatever your choice)
- that way your data is safe and you can try whatever Office suites (MS- XXXX/Open/Libre - Google) you like knowing that you can always get back to the info you had even if your laptop bricks - because one day your laptop will brick, or get physically mangled
