Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

Was checking compatibility of the Office 2003 WebPart today.

On a machine that doesnt have Office 2003 installed the WebPart gives the following error.

"To use either the Spreadsheet Web Part or the PivotView Web Part, you must have Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01 Service Pack 2 (SP2) or later and the Microsoft Office 2003 Web Components installed on your computer. See the Microsoft Office Web site for more information.
Install the Office 2003 Web Components."

Interestingly enough the link pointed to by "Install the Office 2003 Web Components" is a dead one.

<rant>I hope you MS fellows correct this, or atleast if you hardcode a link in one of your products pls make sure it stays put :P</rant>

The proper download link (at least at the time of posting this comment) for the Office 2003 Web Components is

I checked and the links I have in the WSS FAQ are still working.

The MS link must have been down for *a long time*.
