I certainly wouldnt call the M$ office suite better, it is always trying
to be all things to all men and ends up as a pile of shite, over bloated
and practically unusable, not to mention the worldwide curse of the macro
virus, I have only one complaint about WP and that is that its default
page size is always letter and I havent found a way to change it yet, but
apart from that it is fine and prints to my hp 6mp without any additional
software involved.

And how can windows be an investment when you have to pay thro' the nose
to upgrade it all the time to keep up with the ever changing file formats?
