microsoft eats the dog food

An article in Fast Company that talks about how the Microsoft Project team improved its software by using it. Example:

Microsoft Project included as a regular feature a time-sheet tool that helped project managers stay on top of their team's hours. Particularly for teams working a regular 9-to-5 shift, it was a useful feature -- or at least the Project team always assumed that it was.
Until, that is, Capossela's own software engineers learned that they were going to have to start filling in time sheets.

Now, this article has to be MS-spoon-fed drivel. No mention of the fact that Microsoft changed this in the latest revision of the product. That means that they didn't use the software up to that point. How is that supposed to be "cool" as the article implies? Microsoft is eating its own dog food, great.

But maybe they should have started eating it a long time ago.
