Microsoft Word gets an F in grammar
Microsoft bashing season is open again and this time it isn’t Windows that’s being targeted, it’s their popular text editor by an associate professor of the University of Washington. According to him the grammar tool that Microsoft Word uses is very rudimentary.
A study done by him shows that the grammar tool that Microsoft Word uses is very rudimentary as many news websites are pointing out with mock phrases such as "In trust we Word" in Cnet.
I’m not sure of how good my grammar is but it’s ironic that I use Word for spellchecking since it’s what I have “at hand”. If anyone knows of a better tool for this purpose please tell me (English isn’t my native language, I’m Portuguese).
