Word: Just Say No

Stephen Poole, author of the excellent computer games book Trigger Happy has found a new Zen in losing Word. Excellent, informed and enjoyable. Goodbye, cruel Word:
For the first time, I no longer have a copy of Microsoft Word installed on either of my computers. That’s some change. I wrote my first two books, and many hundreds of articles, in Word. But I’m writing my third book in an inexpensive yet wonderful piece of Mac-only software written by a single person instead of a “business unit” at Redmond. Scoured of Word, my computers feel clean, refreshed, relieved of a hideous and malign burden. How did it come to this?
