One thing MS does so very wrong is they have file extensions for known file types turned off by default. It just is wrong. You give directions to someone and they get it wrong not because of poor directions or the person did it wrong but because what they see is not what really is. MS should have file extensions on by default. There shouldn't even be an option to turn them off.
