Do you use the Microsoft MANUAL OF STYLE?

My department has adopted the Microsoft MANUAL OF STYLE as our official
standard of usage, with only a few modifications (e.g. we prefer to
designate an internal network with webpages an "Intranet" rather than
"internet" in order to avoid confusion with the global "Internet").

I'm wondering how many others on this list also use the MS-MANUAL OF
STYLE and how many of those that do so also find it prudent to make some
exceptions to the Microsoft rules.
