Way back on May 29, 1999 I made a snarky entry about Microsoft’s work on a new English dictionary. Well, last night, I saw the dictionary in a bookstore, and that led me to wonder how well the project turned out. (It was billed as being quite innovative at the time.) There are 41 reviews for the dictionary at Amazon.com, some good, some bad. I also found some reviews of the dictionary on the Web, but none of them were detailed or scholarly enough to provide information not found in the Amazon.com customer reviews.
