Self-Professed Microsoft Word Fanatic

A killer who uses Word? I've heard that before. But it's unusual to hear that the Oslo killer was such a fanatic (of a different kind) of Microsoft Word.

I once worked for a database developer magazine a few decades ago. I was in charge of the mail and I was shocked to receive a letter from a customer, who wanted to thank us for providing an invaluable service (we published database code snippets for Clipper, dbase III, Paradox and others) that helped him manage his newsletter publishing list. The publication? A white supremacy "fanzine" based in north San Diego county. And it wasn't Word, but another Microsoft/Sybase technology, which, at the time, was bleeding edge.
