Software Misuse

Darren Barefoot writes about one incident of Microsoft Excel’s misuse. I’ve seen it used as a word processer, for games, as a database, and a drawing program.

I’ve received emails where the email’s content is in an attached Word document instead of in the email itself.

I’ve seen Flash used for a web site when HTML will do.

I’ve seen people use fancy, expensive programs to do screen captures when pressing the PrtScr button or Alt+PrtScr buttons will do.

Have you seen programs used for other than their intended purpose?
