I doesn't pop up instantly, as some reviews have said, but its certainly 
is speedy. Much more so than OpenOffice. It handles the Word documents 
floating around work just fine. It handles Word docs with tables better 
than OO does.

I still need to sit down with it and do some real-world document 
creation with it, but from what I can see so far, it's a bargain for 
$50. I would use it instead of AbiWord, and if it does everything I use 
OpenOffice for, I will probably buy it.

One wishlist: left/right pages (or page styles) would be extremely 
useful for double sided printouts that need to be bound.


p.s. I'll still keep OpenOffice though, because I need the spreadsheet 
and presentation software at work.

p.p.s. Does purchase of the software allow installation and usage at 
both home and work by the same individual?
