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.
