I've been using WP 6.0A since early last summer at work. We initially
worked with 6.0, but had problems just like everyone else seems to have
had. It was constantly doing strange things to fonts, fouling up our
printer, crashing constantly, and so on. 6.0A seems to have solved the
problem for us. I still have an occasional crash--primarily because my
system is a bit short on RAM.

I have both WP 6.0A and Word 6 on my system at home and have had no
problems with either, so far. I initially installed WP on my system
because I sometimes have to bring work home with me. Because I am "Chief
Forms Designer" for my company, I work extensively with tables. On this
score, WP is head and shoulders above Word 6. However, I prefer Word for
almost everything else I do. Now, if I could only find a single piece of
software which combined the best of both...
