Personally, I prefer to stay with WP when possible. It still has advanced
features that are not available anywhere else, e.g. I can still import
Windows WP specialized spellcheckers into Linux, have the ability to put
text sideways, along the 11" margin, while keeping text normally down the
page, and have available 100 or so spreadsheet functions available to me
when using tables...etc.

good information to have for future reference, did not know they even had
this, thanks.
