I know Apple doesn't like to make it easy on Microsoft, but it should in this case.
I wanted to take addresses in my Apple Address Book and export them into Excel so i could organize a huge list.

Nope, i needed to download 3rd party software to do so.

Excel is so widely used, i think Apple should export to .csv or .xls or another format that Excel can open.
