I think his product has evolved quite a bit.

From my view, the same wariness should be applied to Word.

For at least a decade after the master document feature was released, Word would irrevocably cross-mungulate documents controlled by a master document. Undo didn’t work in those cases, and it was a matter of “when,” not “if” it would happen.

I have to use Word at work, but most of what I write is in regards to things running under Linux or Unix. Vim in markdown, pandoc to docx, and I fit in with the crowd without actually touching Word.
