if you have a monopoly over both the operating system and the office package in business oriented computing, you would think that they would play nice enough together that using the office pacakge wouldn't crash the OS...

but its probably my fault for trying to do something computationally intensive like hitting the backspace key.

On my iBook, Office X seems to require some deep thinking for the tough operations like, say, displaying the character that I just typed. Here we have a technology that, over the course of 120+ years, has gotten significantly worse at performing its basic function. Oh, I'm sure that the word processor is busy analyzing the letter I just typed for grammar compliance and checking with Poindexter to see if it qualifies me as a terrorist, but come on. On the plus side, Microsoft is encouraging innovation--waiting for the letters to appear gives me time to do other stuff like download OpenOffice, or come up with a web application to just make the documentation that I'm trying to write for me.

the whole point of having a monopoly is so that you don't have to worry about such annoying little details.
