I strongly suspect that Microsoft Office is actually programmed in
Visual C++. If you can limit yourself to one compiler and one compiler
vendor, then the compiler-specific idiosyncracies of C and C++ don't
matter nearly as much. For those of us working in a multiplatform,
multicompiler world, life is a lot more complex.
