Yes, I've used KWord and like it, but I'm using the beta version which
I've found to be rather unstable (when it crashes, it takes my whole
Linux system down). I've created letters and reports (the usual
word-processing tasks) and did some DTP will it. So yes, it will do
everything as advertised.
I'm rather new to Linux, so I'm having a rather difficult time trying to
figure out if its the beta-version of KWord I'm using, or my KDE
environment that's causing the system crashes. So that's my only caveat.
