Microsoft Hacked By France?

Users of Microsoft's Outlook Express 6.0 mail program who upgrade from Microsoft Office 2006 to Office 2007 are finding that they are able to spell check only in French, according to this report in the Register, confirmed by Microsoft support. The problem apparently is that the Office upgrade replaces old spell check files with a new set that are incompatible with Outlook Express. At this time Microsoft has no fix available. France has not taken credit for the situation, but much behind-the-scene giggling is reported at the DGSE.
