I find this believable. It's the right tool for the job. Just as I would expect Adobe employees to use Word to write short papers and memos.

Incidentally, we have come across a few of these fun finds recently... a major computer company with 3 initials uses JRun (a Macromedia server product) for some of it's dynamic web content, even though they make their own server product. I'm sure there are others.

Subject: FrameMaker used for Microsoft documentation?

Hello all:

Been away from the list for awhile...

I'm writing a position paper on why my business unit supports Framemaker
instead of Word for all its technical documents. One of the reviewers writes
that he read in Adobe literature--and heard it from other people--that
Microsoft uses (or used) Frame to create their documents.

Can anyone point me to the evidence, or is this one of those hoaxes, like
Bill Gates handing out money...
