I’m typing a Word doc on my Mac iBook G4 right now, and I’ve typed many others, too, both on Mac and PC. Word is slow, excruciating shit on both systems.
Why is it that Word chugs, sputters, and hiccoughs–even on documents that are rather short and which include no photos, nothing heavy? I type in a letter and–voila!–1.5 seconds letter it appears on the screen. I am genuinely curious why it does this–both on Mac and PC.
PowerPoint does not do this, and its files can be many megabytes large. Excel doesn’t do this. Actually, nothing else in my software experience does this. Can anyone tell me the reason?
Of course, Word is all-round shit in every dimension. I despise the new toolbars in the Windows version. What’s that brushed aluminum with rivets look, anyway?! The old toolbars were fine. Can’t we get used to one of your changes, O MS, without your yanking it away from us once we do so?
And in the Mac version, you get these goofy-silly toolbars that, well, just look like crap.
Enough! I doubt that my statement that MS Word sucks pussy donkey shlong will cause much controversy, but I had the need to vent, and I have done so.
PS–Some software developer please save us from the monstrosity that is MS Word! Arrrrrgh!
