Microsoft Disses Da Docs

A Microsoft Office official Andrew Kisslo may be the Dennis Miller of software (without Miller's obscure and inane references to Boswell). Kisslo blogged about the Google Docs upgrade, ridiculing exciting new features such as being able to move spreadsheet columns and have a margin ruler in a word processor (a feature that seems to have disappeared, at least as a default, in Word 2007).

Kisslo also warns that old Google documents and files may not work with the new Google Docs.

If Kisslo ever leaves Microsoft, he has a great career waiting for him doing standup in the Catskills!

I walked out of a Dennis Miller show after his third Boswell reference. Am I wrong or is Miller the most pretentious comedian ever? You tell me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
