Microsoft seems to enjoy 'death by documentation'.  It's not that the
huge quantity of it is a bad thing per se, or that the individual bits
of documentation are bad, so much as the fact that the various bits
often don't seem to know of each others' existence.  Perhaps that's
achieved by the same people whose job it is to rename everything every
few months?
