Well, I'd think that the real problem is:  If they want  MS
Word  format, that implies that they're pretty much a total
MS shop. If they really used other systems, they'd be aware
of the problems with Word docs.  So unless you're a Windows
hacker, you'd probably be a minor player with no connection
to management.

This is probably fine if you want to be a linux (or BSD  or
whatever) missionary. But it could just be frustrating. And
since you'd be marginal, you'd be one of the  first  to  be
fired when there's a reorg.
