I've been noticing most people regard word as the best text processor. I disagree. Once you've voted, what is good and bad about word? :ph34r:

Word has been regarded as an industry-standard text editor for a good reason.

There's only 1 good thing about Word - there's nothing bad about it :)

Nevermind, there's 1 bad thing about it - the price. But that's it.

:D Hello every one,

I use Notepad a lot. I very rarely use Word. Word needs a feature like Notepad where it could be used as an editor for writing software. Word could be the best software editor on the market if they put their minds to it.

Word? People still use that? Wow.

I haven't touched the MS Office suite since 2003. The cosmetic crap they added to 2007 or XP or whatever was more flash than functional. And it only gets worse.

I use OpenOffice.org for all my Office type needs. I use various notepad like things if it's just text. Hell, Google Docs is actually pretty good and offline processing is coming soon.

Are we talking text editors or word processors? For text editing I use Emacs. For word processing I use Abiword, or OOo. I don't really have a problem with the new Office's "ribbon", but I also don't see anything that it can do that would make me want to switch.

Word Processor != Text editor

Word is a work processor not a text editor.

I use Emacs for all my Haskell editing, most of my Clojure editing, all of my text editing... I like Lisp.

For me, Word is just fine, since i dont use Word that much.
It's on my computer, so its fine. If i didn't had Office on my computer, i'd download OpenOffice.org. Just because I can, and it's free :)

Word has to many minor formatting issues that always happen for me. Use Open Office mostly as any of the same problems (usually) do not also occur there.
