MSW

Gosh, but Microsoft Word is horrible, isn't it? You forget if you hardly ever have to use it.

I'm trying to put together a document which refers to a lot of scanned letters. So why is it that everytime I embed a 60KB pdf, the file size jumps by 1.5MB? And why does the action of embedding differ depending whether or not the file happens to be open in Acrobat at the same time. It's a right pain, is what it is.

I'm very jealous that you don't have to use it that often. The way OpenOffice mimics its look is also extremely irritating.

Mind you, use Access for a while and suddenly Word and PowerPoint look like good software. At least they don't crash much.
