I have been told that Wordpad is a stripped down version of MS Word. Is this true.

It lies betweeen Notepad and Word in it's capabilites and speed of use. In 98se Notepad is pretty limited, I didn't remember how much until I started using 98se quite a bit. On the other hand Word is quite slow and a bit clumsy so Wordpad is a nice alternative. Wordpad can be a bit glitchy though.

I currently use Wordpad a lot because it loads a lot quicker than Word for many documents. Perhaps it isn't as powerful as Word in terms of formatting text and stuff, but I really don't do much fancy stuff to my documents. Mostly just lots and lots of text. Wordpad gets it done for me.
