    While text files saved in Word for Windows is now the industry standard I have used a standalone word processing program called Abiword.
    (This is not an advert)
    Abiword has a clean and simplified look that is much less cluttered than Word.
    Most people dont know this but most laptops and computers today with base windows or any WYSIWYG interface have a Works suite from Microsoft. I find thus also has a lot of utility without having to purchase a word processing software.
    But Abiword is still free, and if you are like me possibly have very little use overall for excel access and PowerPoint.
    If you need a good version of Abiword, Google it for the latest release.
    I've never had a crash, and if you save the text files as rtf, you can save them in versions of word formatting using the Save As command.
    Let me know your opinions and feedback!
