Word, Microsoft, Clueless
Wednesday, December 21, 2005

I just lost whatever respect I had for Bill Buxton:

Because Microsoft is such a large company, our perception is dominated by what we see in the core products like Office and Word, and we forget that much of the Macintosh experience is based on those products. Make sure we remember that.

Anyone who thinks Word on the Macintosh is an example of good user interface or somehow elevates the Macintosh to higher levels (as opposed to people's blood pressure) needs to get out more. Look at Pages, look at Nisus Express. Look at Keynote compared to PowerPoint. Microsoft Word is the most horribly designed product I've ever used.
