"Works" for me.
I have Microsoft Office on my computer, but I never use it. The few times I want to bang out a letter or two, I use Microsoft Works.
Also, if I ever need to do some serious work, I have Open Office as well.

My telco, a local co-operative, is in the process of bringing Fios to their customers (http://www.3rivers.net/NewsArticles/FiberToThePremises%20.htm)
If the gov't subsidised them, Maybe I could get fios sooner than a few years down the road!
@ In road mode

If just deliberately typed an incorrect URL using OpenDNS (nisa.gov vs nasa.gov) and I received a "Server not found" error message. I was NOT redirected to another URL.
I'll just keep on using OpenDNS, thenkyew!
