Pros: Great Software program that allows you to create content. Uploading and prep are great. It is a solid performer when it comes to blogging creation.

Cons: Very computer intensive. This is my biggest gripe. Too much to offload onto a blogging site and there are other applications that can do this job just as good, if not better. Steep learning curve btw.

Pros: Microsoft is always helpful no matter what you're trying to do. But this is a "basic" and efficient way to create quick documents.

Cons: The cost to use the software could be a little more comparable to competitive products, however it is not such a huge different that would deter me from using it.

Pros: Multitude of features available. It out competes many other writer processors in the market for how comprehensive it can be.

Cons: Frustrating sometime when trying to format and add images . Not as easy to create interesting layouts.
No free version. You have to pay to play. Aside from that I think once or twice margins can be annoying to work with.

Pros: Super easy to use and understand. And for anyone who isn't real adept with writing programs, I feel this one is easy to navigate.

Cons: Might be a bit more outdated than more complex word processing programs. A nice option would be for it to save more often as sometimes I'm traveling and will forget to save it when I should have.

Pros: This is a great tool for those who do content writing for SOP's and process implementation as part of either manufacturing or anything that has a beginning and end that has to be documented. The tool can be used by anyone regardless if you have experience with writing or not and that's literally the best thing about it. It also helps that it communicates well with other microsoft products.

Cons: The biggest con is that there are other pieces of software that make the above obsolete in terms of process implementation. The thing is that those pieces of software tend to be more expensive so you need to do the research to see what works. That's where the "basic" element comes into play.
