Still a N00b

Posted 11-04-2009 at 07:30 PM by zaivala

I'm one of those Linux users who would like Linux to operate more like, at least in appearance and functionality, Windoze. I've been having a great time with Ubuntu, using it regularly since 8.04 Hardy Heron. I still don't know many of the ins and outs of Linux or even Ubuntu, as I'm more of a user than a programmer or administrator. If someone tells me to go into Terminal and enter ____, I can copy and paste, run it, and report the results, but that's about as deep as I get.

Has anyone found a decent word processor yet?

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 (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...
