Who uses WordPress for their Blog… Microsoft!

Who uses WordPress for their Blog… Microsoft! Bouncing around the place today putting some updates to the Microsoft News App for iPhone and iPad. One of the big sites for information and news around Microsoft for Mac products is naturally their own website.   What we did find interesting was the blog site on this Microsoft web page: Is actually running on WordPress. http://blog.officeformac.com/ Which makes perfect sense to us, as we run the http://www.interactivewebs.com website blog on WordPress too.
