SOFTWARE Division semis: Word vs Excel
« on: Dec 15, 2014, 12:09 am »
It could be said that this match is happening too early in the tournament. After all, Word & Excel (and their open source doppelgangers) may well be the most heavily used digital items across the entire league. Unfortunately, this tourney ain't big enough for the both of them.

In the previous round Word struggled to find its footing against the Web Browser while Excel breezed through its game with Acrobat. We might be able to predict a similar outcome here, but Word has been known to run circles around Excel in prior years. Only the stage managers will be able to determine the winner of this highly anticipated pairing.

You have until the end of Wednesday, midnight EST, to make your choice.

Wow, this is a tough one. I am honestly going to have to think about this for a while.....

I'm leaning Excel right now- I can make Excel do just about everything Word can do, though it takes a little more formatting. A little harder to force Word to have Excel-like functions.
