I've got Applixware 5.0, and it has actually done the best job for me in handling MS documents. I've tried StarOffice 5.2, KOffice 1.1, and AbiWord 0.7, but Appixware seems best. I've never yet been able to get KWord to print properly, whether it is a converted document or a nativelt created document. The only problem with Applixware 5.0 is that it is not available anymore. I believe the new product is called AnyWare.
