We use Word.

Word doesn't handle large or complex documents well, and its indexing
and autonumber-reference tools are weak (in comparison to tools such as
Interleaf and Frame).

But you *can*, with some effort, press Word into admirable service. And
most people already know Word, keeping the learning curve low.
