In some circles unladylike language is considered a plus. :)

Oddly enough, I've always found it to be a plus and when I get on a
windows box it drives me nuts that I have to actually do something
other than select the text to get it to the clipboard.  I use X's
highlight select for text all the time.

So it all depends on your usage patterns really.  I avoid office apps
like the plague on the theory that if I am using them, I'm doing
office work.  I'd much rather do the sysadmin voodoo so that other
people have systems they can do actual work on.  ;-)
