I didn’t say I don’t use Microsoft products. I am forced to. I am saying I don’t want to rely on them exclusively. Microsoft’s aim is clearly to herd everyone into their Office 365 annual subscription system. When a company is that big, it usually means the customers have to adapt to the changes based on the company’s needs, and not the other way around. Small developers work to satisfy the needs of the customer.

I don’t use Apple’s Pages or Numbers. You’ve got to trust somebody’s hardware and operating system.

If you read my whole post you’d see that I addressed small developers and Scrivener.
