Die, Word, Die!

Several of the RSS feeds I follow commented on an article from Slate (also a feed I follow) about the obsolescence of Word. Ironically, I was just having conversations with the Network Admin at school about his desire to axe Word. We are planning to move to Google Docs with a few computers running Pages and Word for serious conversion needs. I can’t wait.

Today, the last few hours of my day were spent trying to find out why a 37 page Word form kept crashing. Both the Network Admin and I tussled with it. When I left, the situation was still not resolved.

Yes, Word, time to exit the stage. You have secured your place in the Hall of Fame alongside the typewriter and printing press.
