There shouldn't be any speculating about this. MS did advertise the Surface and Excel. The fact that this article exists with it's title and supposed story is a little silly.
Microsoft obviously sucks at marketing. Their surface ads suck, and they've done a terrible job at marketing the Xbox One (they're pretty much giving a majority market share to Sony).
Excel can obviously add up the numbers correctly, the error is due to human error. I personally prefer other spreadsheets (Gnumeric is better for actual number crunching), but this entire article is silly.
