Trying to decide between:
_____Microsoft Word 2003
_______TextMaker (by SoftMaker)
I've already excluded 602Software, OpenOffice, AbiWord, and Atlantis Word. What I do most is write articles, papers, essays, and the occasional (academic) book. I don't need PDF capability, but do need a word processor whose file format converts well to text format. Cost is not a factor, but ease of use is.
