Warning: Office 2003 Imaging destroys TIFF files

I opened original TIFF in Microsoft Office 2003 Imaging.

That image needs ot be rotated 180 degrees, so I rotated 90 degrees twice, and tried to save. Invalid file, but it still let me save it.

The resulting file is unreadable.

In true Microsoft style, if I try to open the old Wang/Microsoft Imaging with Start/Programs/Accessories/Imaging, the old program is gone, replaced with the new and dangerous one.

Flashback: Many years ago, I renamed IE to keep the production version while installing a beta.

Guess what? The beta installation found the old version anyway, and overwrote it. Given the chance, those guys would have tried a nuclear device right on their desk. (wishful thinking...)

btw, the Quicktime plugin is not very good at reporting its inability to read the image
