I work as a Systems Engineer, but I have a B.S. in Electrical and
Computer Engineering with a minor in Computer Science.

As a Systems Engineer, most of my deliverables are Word (and sometimes
Excel) documents. Being able to diff Word documents as easily as text
documents is a great advantage to me as well.

The diff and merge scripts do need work, and various (minor)
TortoiseSVN issues also need work, but I plan to contribute to all of
this when I find the time.
