Revelation: Why I Still Use Microsoft Word

Filed under
OOo

Even though I use Linux on my main workstation, I have to admit that I can't live without Microsoft Word so I have it installed through Wine and VirtualBox.

I know there are several good Office Suites that have capable word processors and run natively on Linux. But I still prefer the one that's made by Microsoft for a very simple reason. --I need a reliable grammar checker.

You may already know that I am from the land of Manny Pacquiao, the Philippines, so I don't speak or write in English that well. That is why I heavily rely on MS Word to save me from total humiliacion humiliation Smile

I once tried OpenOffice.org Writer with Language Tool extension installed, but it is still not as good as MS Word when it comes to correcting grammatical errors. To prove it, see the following screenshots:
