    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
