It’s cool if you don’t like Office, but saying “most people have moved beyond office suites” is a big assumption.

The nerve on some people. "Douchies McDouchesteins" may not have a choice. And corporations still use this software… a LOT.

MS Office is the lifeblood of many companies, including my employer. Feels like a little bit of Apple-friendly retconning.

It's the base-rate fallacy in play. Same assumptions that led ppl. to overestimate BB lead us to underestimate Office.

I’d say they’ve found alternatives to Microsoft, not necessarily given suites up entirely.

@HarryCMarks Yes, maybe some companies have. Although it’s unfortunate how, at least here, you rarely hear “iWork” in corporate.

@HarryCMarks Well, you can’t adopt iWork without being entirely Mac-on-desktop, which isn’t common.

for personal users, I think iWork gets the job done, but QuickOffice Pro and Office2 are the ones I see at work a lot.

like you can use iWork on the iPad without requiring it on a Mac. They’re independent, no?

It’s probably safer to say “most people have found workarounds on their iOS devices”. Few have gone all the way plain text.

ignore the like in that last tweet - I had two thoughts going at the same time.

@HarryCMarks Sorry, let me re-phrase: entirely Apple. As in, no Windows anywhere.

I personally use Google's—but that's a stupid assumption, nonetheless. All corporates I worked for can't function without Office.

@HarryCMarks Covered the disconnect a bit here: Glad to see I was partially right about Office on mobile.

I’d also bet that many if not most think those workarounds are inelegant. Especially those living in a Windows/iOS world.

I think it's more like the false-consensus effect.

Adam Hyland 07 Nov 12
I don't think those two are exclusive. Rather, they would reinforce each other.

Yeah. Certainly BR fallacy would contribute to the effect, but their are other cognitive bias causes too.

Adam Hyland 07 Nov 12
Yup. I like BR because it's easy to explain w/o telepathic sociology. That's my own cognitive bias.

@harrycmarks Office use has definitely declined over the last decade (imo due to rise of email as primary communication)
