Slate Magazine’s Tom Scocca writes: Microsoft Word is cumbersome, inefficient, and obsolete. It’s time for it to die. A choice quote:
I know only one person who loves working in Word: my 4-year-old. It’s valuable to him to be able to put the names of subway lines in their correct colors, or to spell out “autumn” with each letter a different falling-leaf hue, or to jump from Times New Roman to Comic Sans to Chalkboard in midstory. He also loves to write things on my old manual Smith-Corona. A tool that’s lost its purpose makes a great toy.
I pity the technologists who still have to convert from Word. There has to be a better way.
