Office Newswire: Is Microsoft killing Windows for the sake of Office? – 2.29.2012

February 29th is an odd day. Some people treat it like a free day, an extra day that doesn’t really count. They take off work and do something they don’t normally have time to do. Like try a new hobby or take a nap.

Me? I’m travelling this week to sunny Seattle, Washington, USA. My experience here is unusual in that Seattle is typically sunny when I am here. Today, however, I’m finding Seattle to be just as everyone says it is… cold, grey, and raining. I don’t mind. I think this place is beautiful. Mt. Rainier is breathtaking even if you can’t see its summit. There is water, hills, mountains, snow… and everything is so clean!

I have several meetings to attend this morning so the newswire is a bit abbreviated. I hope you don’t mind.
