Office is horrible?
I think so. The whole .docx .xlsx thing is one of the biggest scams going, also VBA -> #*$!?
That's what I meant too, the whole .docx thing is a fiasco IMHO. Also, I couldn't find the "print" option, and my of couldn't find the "help" option. And in general terms, Office is a bloated piece of software, with way too many features.
I was a Netscape user and I remember how terrible the later versions were
Agree 100% but at that point NS was dead, and actually one of the main reasons they bloated was to add features that M$ had pumped straight in the OS: Outlook Express, Notepad for code viewer, etc....
a) Plenty of browser choices out there.
Yes, but most users stick with IE only because it is pre-installed. I can even see it at tech companies. The choice is out there, but it is not exerted (thank god that last few years we've had a bit of movement there)
