Death to Word? Word!

by James G. Beldock on April 11, 2012

Tom Scocca’s got a great piece in Slate about why Microsoft Word has to go. Despite Microsoft’s ef­forts to make of it a doc­u­ment Lingua Franca, it is de­vel­op­ing the cruft and mildew of a lega­cy for­mat. Check out Microsoft Word is cum­ber­some, in­ef­fi­cient, and ob­so­lete. It’s time for it to die. Me? These days I most­ly use Sublime Text 2, un­less I ab­solute­ly have to open Word.
