Why does Word persist?
Authored by: simonm on Jan 03, '09 02:35:50PM

I disagree, trying to maintain consistent formatting in Word is the BIGGEST hinderence to productivity I've ever encountered in an application. The whole styles system is a joke. Even turning off all the auto-format options can't save you. The only way I can manage to write large documents/reports now (as a previous commentator suggested) using text only until the very end and then applying minimul necessary formatting manually.

Yes it would be ideal not to have to type codes. Perhaps there are other LaTex compatible processors I'm not aware of.
