Those that Live by the (S)Word...

...die by the (s)Word:

Microsoft is working with Westminster technology chiefs after politicians and peers complained of being unable to open the latest Word documents.

The Mircrosoft Office 2003 software used by the UK's 646 MPs and 742 peers is incompatible with Microsoft Word 2007 document formats, leaving politicians and civil servants unable to read some correspondence.

Could there be a moral here?

I'm thinking, "Use OpenOffice", but that seems simplified ;-).
