I haven't tried my hand at MS-Office Vista, but even the Office-2007 fresh installation points out the following words as some spelling mistakes:
There's no such thing as MS-Office Vista. Office 2007 is the latest offering.
Internet email (or e-mail)
The word Internet is considered a proper noun and is supposed to be capitalized. You might see the spell check kick in to ask you to fix that.
I'm guessing you saw something similar with Email or E-mail starting a sentence. The Office spell check might be asking you to capitalize the first letter. Other than that I haven't seen these marked as spelling mistakes on any of my systems.
Being the inventor of a certain technology is often held up against MS when they didn't originate something. I'm not sure why that's such a major issue. There are plenty of other companies out there that didn't innovate their technology either, but they don't seem to get the same reaction (ex. Apple).
