Using different word processors

    I've been OpenOffice for a couple years now, yeah. I do love Google docs, but I'm not always at places with reliable wireless internet, so it's easier for me to use OpenOffice then just copy-paste or import.

    Here's the main question I have for folks that switched away from Word: Did a new processor ultimately help you turn out better copy? Otherwise, there's really no reason to switch.

    I don’t know about better, but it has helped me churn out copy on time.

    OpenOffice is free, whereas a yearly Word subscription is around $75, I think.

    Right, but most folks don't necessarily have to pay for Word if it's on their work computer. There just seems to be better options out there.
