Its interface is fairly straightforward and relatively easy to use. For people used to Microsoft products, most of the basic functions are essentially the same.,It could break away from some of MS Word's structures. It should have an (easy to find) option to set the line spacings at something other than the predetermined values without having to reset it every time the program is re-started or a new document is opened. It re-saves documents at start-up without explaining why these need to be re-seaved or who to clear them.,9,I don't have to worry about tangling with MS.

It is so easy to use and produces quality work comparable to its paid competitor, Microsoft Office. I highly recommend this free software to any who need to make the switch to powerful and free Office software.
