No one has complained recently (last 10 years) that I have heard that
Microsoft is lacking in features. CSS on the other hand has received
those complaints. Also I have no fear that the next version of Office
will be delayed because of this. Microsoft has a track record of
producing a usable version of Office every 1-3 years, not 3-5.
