October monthly poll
« on: October 02, 2007, 03:16:29 PM »
For the month of October we thought it would be interesting to see what everyone is using as their primary word processor. If you've voted for Other this month please let us know what word processor you're using. You're also welcome to comment about what you like or don't like about the word processor you're using and/or post about what version you're running.

All past monthly polls and results can be found on the Computer Hope poll page.

    I'm using the word processor in Works for Windows that I got with Win 3.11.
    Don't laugh, it used to run on my 486 with 4 MBs of RAM so it's blisteringly fast on my current 2.4GB P4 with 1GB of RAM.
    It's easy to use and does everything I need.

    I use Word Perfect.
    I tried using OpenOffice but I could not get used to the different layout.

    It looks like Microsuck Microsoft Word is the favorite.

    I'm planning to kill the Office Assistant.

    Actually, I mostly tend to use Notepad.  But because I have to take a class for it for my certificate, I've been using Microsoft Office Word 2007 a lot lately.

    Use Word in work... notepad at home mostly.

    Don't really feel the need to use a word processor at home... and when I do, Notepad is sufficient

    I use Word 2003. I've tried OOo but it just isn't quite as good. It's nice that it's free though.

    I hate Corel Wordperfect! It's the supidest, non-intuitive program out there.  >:( Oh, maybe that's why it's not on the list. :P My parents still use it and I've tried many times to get them to dump it.

    Wow, I'm actually ashamed of myself for forgetting Corel WordPerfect. It has its flaws but should still be an option. I've added it to the list.

    For anyone who voted Other who are using Corel WordPerfect you can change your vote if you'd like. As far as Notepad Chris, I thought about adding that but as I'm sure you know Notepad is just a simple plain text editor.

    Heh. Although I know you don't like it, I do appreciate you mentioning it because it should still be a consideration.

    M$ Word works with VB, so why not use it?
