I recently had to complete a 200 page manual on a very tight schedule.
Having worked with various tools (MacOS, Windows and their respective
applications) I can tell you that if I had been using Word for Windows
rather than Nisus Writer on my PowerMac I would _not_ have finished the job
on time. Tools _do_ matter, as any craftsman will tell you.


Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the
wrong words. - Mark Twain
