I see it as nothing but Microsoft arrogance and determination to dictate to
the rest of the world. As the style editor, copy editor, and every other
kind of editor, the terms I use in company documentation are up to me and my
company and no one else.

I like the term "navigate" because it expresses more precise movement or
movement with purpose (like a ship's captain moves the ship) (no jokes about
the Titanic please). "Explore" expresses random movement or movement not
necessarily with purpose (like George of the Jungle).

Just my opinion and the way I handle Microsoft directives.
