Pirates, maybe its time to start looking for a new job

Just kiddin, I really like the new politics from MS. They are surprisingly adding some new great stuff. Only Office should get same MAJOR upgrade because GDocs are much much better.

Yea it's a good price and totally agree about Microsoft Office, it should get a total revamp, it's complicated and on a few occasions it really doesn't make any sense. It's all about the simplicity and usability, Office got none.
