Re: Word 2003 and the thesaurus

Okay, that helps. I have to infer from what you say that you no longer have 
Word 2000 on your computer to turn to, if you wished. As I do have tit, I'm 
getting the idea that it's just fine, and I oughtn't to give it up until it 
won't run with some future operating system.

About 2003 features; I personally feel that MS only complicated things
for me in all their fancy so called changes. As I said once before, techs
got to make their time look good and they love to think their doing
everyone a big favor by turning a working program into a game. Press one
thing in 2003 and it takes you twenty steps to undo one wrong key stroke.
There might be something good in it but the hassles of trying to shut off
things in the menues is really a pain in the computer. There's that old
saying, KISS...Keep It Simple Stupid is or shold be MS new phrase of the
next 10 releases.
Sorry but had poor results with 2003 and wished I had stayed with 2000!
