Me too!

Dislike the Ribbon-UI introduced in Office 2007.
Don't care much for any of the new features (except spark-lines in Excel, *sigh*).

2003 can read / write later versions' XML-based fileTypes docx / xlsx / etc. albeit only after installing the Compatibility-pack-update.

But the main benefit, the icing on the cake:
Starting ye olde Excel 2003 takes as little time as starting the calculator or notepad Smile | :)

While even on a very powerful, up-to-date PC with NVMe-SSD, many cores and all bells and whistles starting one of the later MS Office programs takes forever, thanks to all the bloat (and animated splash-screens and stuff).

Current LibreOffice isn't much better either in that respect.
