Steven Jong asked if Word 7 was a resource hog.

It's from Microsoft, Steve. Of *course* it's a hog! It will eat your memory
and hard drive with useless 'features' that clog every available pathway and
slow your system to a crawl. (On a Mac it will be even worse because the
software engineers are told to ignore all the built-in elements of the Mac's
Toolbox that make programs written for it fast and elegant.)

In addition, any new release from Microsoft will be in beta test for at
least a year after release to the unsuspecting consumer.

But that's what you get when you get a company driven by marketing.
