So when I inquired to Microsoft about why Word doesn't support MLA 8, I was sent a response that read, "So fun fact, it doesn't appear Word has an MLA 8 edition update yet!" At least they think it's funny! This is a pathetic response from a multi-billion dollar company that can't provide one of the most basic features of it's Word processing program that is used by ALL college students. MLA 8 has been updated from MLA 7 for over a year now (April 2016). By the time MS Word catches up, MLA 9 will be out! I'll say it again, PATHETIC!! Glad to know our well-earned money is being spent to keep your engineer's employed so your programs are kept up to date.
