Hmm, yeah, interesting...

"Microsoft Office 97: Practically the last piece of software you'll ever
buy!"

Yeh, until Office 98 comes out.

Also:

"Microsoft Access 97: You must be dreaming: a database that's easy to
use, has loads of ready-to-run apps, and lets you publish to the Web in
real time. And it works seamlessly with your favorite word processor and
spreadsheet."

Assuming "your favorite" word processor and spreadsheet are Word and
Excel.

I find little use for a "review" that covers only two products and has
nothing but glowing hyperbole for both of them. This thing reads more
like an ad than an article.

I hadn't heard that. Somehow I find it difficult to believe.


Your friend and mine,
