"Works" for me.

I have Microsoft Office on my computer, but I never use it. The few times I want to bang out a letter or two, I use Microsoft Works.

Also, if I ever need to do some serious work, I have Open Office as well.

BTW, I was in "WallyWorld" (WalMart) yesterday, and I saw an Acer netbook offered for sale WITHOUT Word installed!

Re: Google, telcos in wireless agreement shock

Maybe if the government bypassed the big telcos and offered the money to rural co-ops something would be done.

My telco, a local co-operative, is in the process of bringing Fios to their customers (http://www.3rivers.net/NewsArticles/FiberToThePremises%20.htm)

If the gov't subsidised them, Maybe I could get fios sooner than a few years down the road!
