Another reason MS-Word is stupid

Word docs are binary files, so two developers updating documentation can’t edit simultaneously and then merge. And as soon as somebody starts editing in even the most trivial way, TFS establishes a lock. “Just use Word”. Thanks, Microsoft. Again. From the bottom of my black, black heart. For raising the barrier to documentation.
