The Great Word vs. WordPerfect Battle Continues To Smolder
"The word processor that most of the world uses every day, Microsoft Word, is a work of genius that’s almost always wrong as an instrument for writing prose. Almost-forgotten WordPerfect—once the most popular word-processing program, still used in a few law offices and government agencies, and here and there by some writers who remain loyal to it—is a mediocrity that’s almost always right." It's not often that the philosophy of Plato is cited in an article about word processors. John Dewey gets rolled in there too.
Bring back Wordperfect!
(I hate Word with a passion.)
