Unstructured data? What a revolutionary concept.

It was hard not to laugh when I read this post.  While I don't have a strong opinion about Office 11, I do find laughable the idea that making unstructured data accessible and available is a revolutionary concept created by Microsoft.  Lotus introduced Notes over a decade ago to allow better control and use of unstructured data, and our Midas Rich Text LSX was introduced six years ago to give even better access to the unstructured data within Notes (rich text), and it just seems so like Microsoft to invent an idea once there are 90 million + users of the idea.

I think you meant to say you Don't think this is a revolutionary idea by Microsoft, right :-)
