OpenOffice Writer
Having previously watched Microsoft Word lock up and wipe out documents, I wrote my 592 page novel Hopes and Dreams: Stuck on AutoDrive with OpenOffice Writer.  OpenOffice Writer performed just the way any book writer would want it to perform. I never lost any work. OpenOffice Writer never had a problem with the single 592 page document. And upgrading from OpenOffice 1.6 to 2.1 was a seemless transition.

Hopes and Dreams: Stuck on AutoDrive

Dr. Melvin Vagues, M.A.D., of the Teska Lab at Minnesota University (Go Moo!) has discovered that reading actually transforms the mind into a creative monster that can tackle any problem with teams of possibilities and solutions, giving the reader the ability to understand the world in a way that Atlas, an expert at standing under the world, could only imagine.
