Thanks for the giggle,

OK, but you can set up a UNIX virtual machine. Worst case would be needing qemu to emulate whatever processor your WP51 version was set up for.

Still don't know what you have against LibreOffice. It's almost certainly superior to WP51 in every significant way.

At least she doesn't have to worry about "Styles."

Funny but I never had to learn about styles. However they are handier than applying individual attributes to common elements. And while LibreOffice is quite powerful, it's not Scribus nor Scribus-like by any stretch. It's just a modern, feature-rich word processor. That means allowing people to use styles when they want to or ignoring them when they don't.

Not true! You can't even modify an indent without messing with styles. Drove me crazy!


I just tested that claim and it's false. I did the normal thing - opened format | paragraph and changed the indent. When I was finished writing with that indent, I did the same thing only removing the extra indent.
