Too Many (or maybe not enough) Word Processors
A painter doesn’t have just one brush. The carpenter has screwdrivers, chisels, and similar tools of every shape and size. As a writer I could make one tool do everything, but I prefer to let the tools do the heavy lifting while I expend the minimal amount of effort to achieve the best result.
Enough for Randy.
Funnily enough I’ve got a similar setup. I also got one client who wants me to have OpenOffice installed for project planning. If I wouldn’t have that client I would delete OpenOffice immediately to get to a bare minimum set of tools. Same client wants me to use Wuala, which is another big annoyance for me.
