Ya, i am using office 2003 in my windows 7 Machine and it is working fine. I am not a big fan of windows 8 and don't think it is user friendly. Why you are not using office 2007? Office 2007 is also good one. I like to suggest you to try latest update of windows 8.1 (upcoming) because i heard it will be user friendly.
