Kinda on topic and relevant to Linux...

Those struggling with the ANU's migration to Micro$oft Office 365 (I'm
not - I chose not to be "migrated" - ie. off-shored), may already know
that now that part 1 of the assimilation program has all but completed,
part 2 is now starting - the migration to Micro$oft Wave 15.

A colleague is testing Micro$oft Wave 15 on Linux (Ubuntu) and Firefox.

I can't think of any explanation as why he would be observing this...
