Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

    Also check out abiword...I don't think it's as powerful as openoffice, but I like the look of it better.

  10. *ahem* Don't mean to nitpick here, but...

    MS Notepad = text editor
    MS Word = word processor

    There is a difference.

    a lot of pcs now ship with OEM Wordperfect... I dont know if you might have gotten that and overlooked it or not (I got it in the last 2 of 3 computers purchased)

    Wordpad would be the Windows word processor alternative (notepad being the text editor)

    Otherwise, you might want to check out something like http://www.download.com/Word-Process...0.html?tag=dir
