If you are going to use the applications and/or their miniature versions -
expect to get the patches that remedy issues associated with said
applications and/or their miniature versions. ;-)
Not sure why you decided to put your answer in such a manner ("In the real
world I WILL"), but I assure you - we all live in the "real world" and not
everyone receives Microsoft Word Documents. For those that do - you are
correct - you need *some way* to open/view them. For some people, they also
need a way to open/edit/save them. I suppose in your case - you only need
to view them - and the viewers *really are* the best way to ensure you see
things as intended - but are not, by any means, the only way. ;-)
