Submission + - Death to Word (slate.com)

walterbyrd writes: "It took years for me to get to this point. I came of age with Word. It’s the program I used to write my college papers, overcoming old-fashioned page counts with its magical font-switching technology: Times, tightly justified, if the writing was running too long; airily monospaced Courier if things were too short. In those days, Word was an obedient and resourceful servant. . . Today, it's become an overbearing boss, one who specializes in make-work."
