TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I have also been a Word Perfect user since 4.1, but with the recent
versions, you have to throw a lot power at Word Perfect in order to do
things fast (printing especially). We have standardized on Word Perfect 6.1
and most users seem to crash routinely and the program must be reset.
Because Microsoft Word has been more reliable for the individuals that use
this program, I am seeing a slow migration to Microsoft Word 6.0. This
includes the ardent WP users. They seem to be able to get the day to day
jobs done easier. Just an observation.
