Word processors reviewed

Zaine Riding of the Great software list has reviewed word processing packages. [ht lifehack] He concludes:

For myself, here are my own personal choices within each category and the briefest reasons why.

Major Word Processor

StarOffice/OpenOffice, because of its universal file format in ODF, it's roadmap, and the fact that it is Open source.

Runner-up: Microsoft Word 2007, because it's essentially a desktop publishing app now.

Second-tier Word Processor

TextMaker for its polish, accurate .doc conversion, and multi-platform support.

Runner-up: 602Text, for its stability.

Online Word Processor
Zoho Writer, because of its strong HTML formatting and feature set unique to any word processor online or desktop, and its ODF support.

Runner-up: Google Docs, because it's fast, easy, and never loses a document nor lets you make a mistake.
