Though I am not a writer, I use computer more than 10 years. I found Microsoft Word is the best.It's user interface is great and user friendly. It has also a lots of formatting features. If you think for free alternative, Open Office is also good.

Microsoft is an exprienced company. MS Word is probably the most used application in Windows.

Microsoft Word. Probably because of its wide usage and normally this is how correspondences are written. But for quick program scripts, notepad will do.

I used to use Word Perfect but I discovered that I was converting much of my work over to Microsoft Word because more of my associates used MW. It was strictly a choice for convenience sake.

Ummm... yes. Microsoft Words is well known for its simplicity to use, but convenience? I don't think so... Many Office application alternative are there to pick.

By convenience I meant that since so many of my collegues were using Microsoft Word then it was more convenient to use what they were using instead of having to convert everything I did so they could read it.

PDF(portable document format) have exist for a long while. It is the most portable format, before odf(open document format) and arise. why not using pdf to share a document with your friend? there are too many free application to read a pdf available to download. :)

I'm not a writer either. But I've been using the computer to write reports and other school requirements for years now. And I use MS word. I've used Open Office a couple of times, but I'm more at home with MS word since I've been using it for ages.

Yes a transition from a habit that Microsoft has introduce a long time a go will be hard to change... I've using OpenOffice since a couple years ago... The hardest part is when I encounter a different way to solve a same problems.
