I've been using microsoft word for a while now, and im frankly sick of it.
It takes almost half a minute to load up (nothing to do with my pc) and if you copy something before you open word and then open it and try to paste it, it doesnt work.
It's small things like that that get me pissed off :thumbsup:
Now for my question, do any of you know of any good replacements to microsoft word? It doesn't matter if they're free or not!

Try Open Office. It will create, modify, and view Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. It reconizes Office '97, and 2000 formats. It is Sun Micro Java based so you will need Java runtime for end users. You can install without it but you won't get all of the features. Install java first.
Also be sure and select all of the options when installing Open Office.

In addition to getting a very good word processor, you will be getting a spreadsheet application and a presentation module as well---all for the price of the time it takes to download it. All files you create in OO.o (OpenOffice. org- - -the official title) can be saved as Office file types. I use and recommend this product.
Soon to come will also be a database application in the new release.
If you prefer just a stand alone word processor, there is also Abiword.
