MS-Office in the Workplace

Just for the record.

I’m working with a company that made headlines in 2012 with the announcement that it will be moving close to a hundred thousand employees to Google Apps.

Guess what format they send stuff to me in now.

Pure MS-Word and MS-Excel.

It’s not even in .docx or .xlsx but in the classical .doc or .xls formats which Google Apps no longer supports.

I suppose that even as they moved to Google Apps, they kept MS-Office around to communicate with the outside world.
