When Micro$oft released Word with the .docx format, it caused nothing but problems for so many users. Sending files back and forth that were unopenable without a converter or open source word processor (such as NeoOffice) meant that anyone using older versions of Micro$oft’s own Word (with .doc extension) could not open the new .docx files. And of course it was slightly complicated for basic users to change the default file format in the new version of Word to save in an older format.
Now, it comes out that Micro$oft stole the software from a Canadian company.
Ha ha on Micro$oft! Merry New Year, suckers! (I’m sure they will find a way to snake out of it, but still, today, this verdict makes me happy.)
