VMWare ThinApp is what you are seeing. I've done some testing while it was still called Thinstall and then VMware bought it. It's nice because it allows you to use Office 2003 / Office 2007 / Office 2010 and many more applications like IE6, IE7, IE8 next to each other.

I installed Office 2003 in a Windows XP VM, then ...

You will see [Compatibility Mode] after the file name in the title bar. If you want ...

Yes, you can install different versions of different Office products simultaneously. The installer will ask if you want to replace the old version or install side-by-side. For example, at work I have both Access 97 and Access 2003 installed to handle both older and newer versions of MDBs.

It's not because the application is called WINWORD.EXE and the icon is the same that it is the exact same application that is shipped in Office. All Office applications have a digital signature. Right-click the winword.exe and excel.exe files and check if there is a Digital Signatures tab. You will notice those applications don't have a signature at all let ...

Sounds like you've done all the right research. Bottom line their is no single identical program as all of them have slight variations between windows and Mac versions but from my experience Open Office seems to be the best option for overall similarity and for keeping the older menu bar options which I prefer as well. However if you do decide to shell out ...
