MS Word update

After 15 years of updates, Microsoft Word STILL sucks so badly.

Just crashed while trying to run spell check (lost work, of course!)

MS needs more rocket-scientists (they appear to work for most other software companies).


  1. Yes, I agree. Granted my latex editor crashes more frequently, but auto saves everything every few seconds so I have never lost anything.

  2. @Joel -- what do you use? WinEdt rare (ever?) crashes on me...

  3. I use Texniccenter. Have thought about switching to WinEdit, but hard to find the time.

  4. Try Linux, which comes bundled with LibreOffice. Ubuntu 11.10 sucks in many ways, but it's a really easy way to at least learn Linux. You can download the image from the site, or just pay 5 pounds to get a disk sent to you. Best part - it's free.
