The German computer journal c't compared M$WORD with it's competitors:
WP 1.1, WordPro, OpenOffice1.1, Ragtime, Textmaker and Papyrus X.

The test was to write a "Thesis" on these programs: 140 pages with 120 
images and 240 footnotes.

Programs which crashed during the test: Word 2003, WP 11 and WordPro 
9.8. Actually word started struggling after the 20th image and gave up 
after the 50th.

OO1.1, Ragtime 5.6.5, Textmaker 2002 and Papyrus X were stable.
