Ditching MS Word?

I am unlikely to do that since I use both Word and Excel frequently and like their flexibility. The cost for Student and Teachers edition in usually less than $100, and over the 4 or 5 years that I have it on a given machine, it will easily repay it's cost by it's flexibility. If I was strapped for cash, I might consider doing something like that, but for me, the cost is way less than $1 a day. Probably a quarter or less. I have been using MS Office for well over 10 years, and enjoy the changes that they incorporate in their new versions. I have a lot of free software on my Windows computers, but always willing to pay for MS Office. I must have thousands of files that have been created with them, and I am a home user. MS Office has the power and flexibility that I want, and I am not a Microsoft Fan-boy!!!! There are a few free programs that they have created for Windows 7 that I have never used and probably never will.
