I run win2000 and I need to do some serious word processing........sadly, all I have onboard is Wordpad and it has very limited edit options........where can I can find something more useful for the task???????

Wordpad, for all intents and purposes, is quite a good word processor for most people's needs - most use only a tiny fraction, for instance, of Word's abilities.

After a long wait, this new version is available. Still in Beta, but seems to be working fine. Much improved interface, and several new features including multiple language dictionaries.
