My documentation is good.

As good as Microsoft's--better in some workflow efficiencies and
regards, I'd say.

I have some of the same things in my deliverables, certainly. Still, I
compare my timetable and resources to those of Microsoft and grin. And,
when--as always happens--somebody values the published opinion of a
Microsoft technical writer over my ten years of experience, education,
and training, I just smile even more.

For, yes, it's a fellow technical writer. But, being where they are,
they should be used to more scrutiny and a brighter spotlight; and there
is nothing wrong with either.

My stuff will be up for scrutiny at the WinWriters
<> conference in 15 days. Feel free to hold my
feet to the fire, too!

I often wonder at the fact that many people on this list enjoy taking
anti-MS potshots like this, thinking that in doing so they are cleverly
assailing the Evil Giant.

In fact, they are just picking on the work of a fellow tech writer.

Would YOUR documentation bear such ruthless scrutiny? I know mine
