I had to do a useless Word assignment for a class, pretty much type a paragraph on comp security, make it look like a newsletter, throw in an image, and use a wordart thingy. Anyhow, I don't use Word, I have open Office. i'm not paying for fucking word. Anyhow, OO doesn't have wordart (or Abiword, whatever I used) so I made something that looked completly similair with Ms Paint and threw it on there. When I got graded I got a 0 on the wordart section for not using wordart, I said I don't actually have MS Word but something that works basically the same, and the teacher basically said too bad, you need MS word because its an "MS Office certification" class. Bullshit I say. I still got a good grade so I don't care but it's still retarded that they force you to buy MS crap or Adobe this and that etc. Is the reason why that the schools get money from MS and the like for pushing there products?
