I've been trying to use the available WP programs, in my work as a professional editor. They don't work. They don't hold formats and even change fonts and font sizes, just from opening a Word document and then saving it again... didn't change anything, but it changed anyhow. I have tried OpenOffice.org (latest version, and yes, I have an official and "stable" copy), AbiWord, and a few others. I can't find an old copy of WordPerfect for Linux, but in the last version it would not edit...
Well, I may as well say a few things about myself, I guess.
1. I've been using Linux for about 8 years now, unless I'm remembering entirely wrong (and this is possible, as my concept of time is terrible). I don't know how, but I haven't even touched a computer with Windows on it in almost 4 years. Working at Lowe's a couple of years helped with that (they use Linux on every terminal).
2. My favorite distribution is Arch, and I love KDEmod....
