20 years of Rick!

Today is an auspicious day, for it is Rick Schaut's 20th anniversary with Microsoft.  He's been working on Word:Mac the whole time (well, we might occasionally let him look at some code that's shared across Office:Mac).  

Rick, you're one of my favourite people here in MacBU, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate everything that you've done to help me out in my comparably-short time here.  Congratulations on 20 years!

    So, if Rick has been with Microsoft for 20 years, that would mean that he's been around since Mac Word 4, right?

    Now, if only Rick would blog more 🙂

    To be precise, I did ship Win Word 97, but, at that time, there was only one Word development team.

    Nevertheless, thanks for the shout-out (schaut-out?).
