Interesting. I made some comments on building old XP installs for custom purpose in that other thread...I suppose that's impossible now? Can one install whatever current windows on an offline computer? I haven't bought a computer with anything preinstalled since 1992. Perhaps I should ask if regular people even use an offline computer?
I can say this with full confidence: it is the single worst thing for freewriting and thesis writing.
Dude, there is nothing wrong with liking Google Docs. We use it every day for work and I use it in my personal life as well. It's an example of GOOD software that was well thought out.
