Microsoft put up a new "PC vs. Mac" section on its Windows website describing the advantages of Windows PCs over Apple Macs, making some good points in the process, even as it overlooks many of the Mac's advantages. That's to be expected with marketing.

But one of the omissions is downright comical in the scheme of things: "If you use Apple's productivity suite, sharing files with PC users can be tricky," the site says. "Your documents mightn't look right and your spreadsheets mightn't calculate correctly." May be it's because the Windows team forgot their own "Mac Business Unit" -- you know, the people responsible for Microsoft Word documents look right and Excel spreadsheets calculate correctly on the Mac. Microsoft's own productivity software is the traditional leader on Macs, which makes the criticism of Apple's Pages and Numbers software a bit of a red herring.
