So . . . just as those who say Britney Spears is a musical genius are ignorant, so are those who knock MS Word (complete with examples)? Oh cripe, come on now!
Britney has her followers and so does MS Word. And while Word can be a real pain in the a*s, it's still fairly versatile and, at least most of the time, will perform as expected -- especially with plug-ins. But can the same be said for Britney?
