Yes, but that only builds up pressure for everybody to upgrade to the latest version. Microsoft is usually pretty good about backwards compatibility, i.e., MS Office n+1 can read documents written by MS Office n, but not necessarily vice-versa, so once enough people have moved to MS Office n+1, if you're still on MS Office n you will be inundated by Office n+1 documents that you can't open, from people who are (a) amazed how you can still work with that obsolete software package, Office n, and/or (b) used to saving stuff as ».doc« all the time and don't realise there are different flavours.
