Damned by faint criticism

Possibly the lamest indictment of MSWord I've yet seen:

"What I hate about this WYSIWYG word processor is that it doesn't display other people's documents the way *I* want them to be displayed."

By the way, here is how I deal with word documents:

cat wasteoftime.doc | strings | less
rm wasteoftime.doc

Easy, huh?

I think this merits a useless use of cat award. :-p

Do you mean some artistic statement by berating the article for a quote that doesn't appear anywhere? Barring things it doesn't actually say, I find the article quite reasonable.
