I'm old. When I was working I wasn't much for collaboration and now, not at all. I don't want to do layouts or exotic document designs. For years I used Windows Office 2003 and was happy. I could type my documents in Word and send them through Outlook. But, time moves on. Now I have Outlook 2013. I can type my emails but I want something for typing longer documents that aren't for emailing.
I tried Microsoft Word 2013 but returned it. Microsoft seems to have put all their energies into developing areas I don't need, like collarboration--even the word gives me willies--and layout and design. All of that simply gets in the way and makes simple document creation a pain.
If I could strip all the unnecessary dross out of Word 2013 it would be fine.
