I stopped using WordPerfect the day it erased every bit of text in my
document in response to a single keystroke and gave me no way to undo the
action. To this day, I have no idea what key I pressed to invoke this
action. This was WordPerfect 2, I believe, for the Mac.
The same day I began using Word, which I think was version 3 at that
point. Word 5.1 for the Mac is now my preferred word processor. I will
use Word 6, the current version, only under duress, such as the
enticement of a large advance on a book which must be written using this
Spawn of Satan. I've done several large projects with 5.1. However,
I'll likely switch to FrameMaker for my next big job and see how it goes.
