Re: Office software shootout: Word's Grammar checker still fails the grade

What a hilarious comment - let's have no spell checker to make us better spellers and no styles to make us think about changing text formats manually etc etc?
This whole essay is one of the most biased articles I have ever read.
I use MS because Open Office sucks in many ways - pretty good for free software but that is it.
I even use MS word through WINE under linux because that is the only wayto guarantee your formatting won't be lost between saves or distribution.
Simple things like losing the tab space between numbered heading levels and all your embedded pictures dissappearing to name a few!
