That's great, but how do I open my Word documents? Where's Outlook? Why can't this 200 page document be opened in 8MB of RAM? Why can't this 30MB scanned PDF be opened? Where's my search widget? How do I log onto the intranet? Where is Visio?

I won't reply anymore for me this has just closed the whole argument.
Ummm... You brought up a point that was frankly difficult to understand, but now you don't want to discuss it? Why bring it up?

No cut and paste etc that is definitely wrong I was cut and pasting with MS Works.
And what good is that when what I said, and what I want to do, is to copy and paste a chart from Excel into Word? Works can't open those formats for a start, and can't share objects with them via the clipboard either. Works might be fine for printing signs for your local church fair, but it's useless for any serious office work.
