"Goodbye, cruel Word" -- Amen!

Steven Poole says, "Goodbye, cruel Word". Creating text on a computer doesn't have to be an exercise in frustration. I agree with his assessment that Word 5.1 for the Mac was the last good version of Word. Since then, it's become more and more unusable, and less and less fun to use. I should be able to use tools to do work, without having to be too aware of the tools themselves. Word seems to need attention, and believe me, I'd love to roll up a newspaper and give Word a few whacks every time I use it.
