Since you all know so much about Word 2010, I would like some
feedback...I will be writing a large user guide and I don't know if I
will have an alternative to Word for DTP. My OS is XP Professional
2002 and I have only 2 GB RAM...about how many pages are we talking
before I go postal while trying to process a large multi-chapter document?

Chris replied:
When you're actually ready to go, why not download the free 30-day trial version of Adobe InDesign and use that?

I think:
Isn't Adobe InDesign one of the worst tools available for producing long documents? From experience, it is great for a 2-page spread, or short marketing brochure, but can be a real pain when trying to write large documents with multiple chapters ... unless I'm missing something here?? I know that local newspapers are using InDesign for print, but I personally would never choose InDesign as my first choice when deciding what to use to write a long document... unless the suggestion is purely based on Kat's system specs?
