I was reading an article about the CES in Vegas today and saw the comments about OpenOffice being too big to be really portable. One hundred and forty-four megabytes is a lot of space for a program on a flash drive, but still, I like OpenOffice. It's free, so why complain too much?
However, as I read further I saw a link to an online word processor called Writely. I haven't read the whole site yet, but it looks interesting even though it is in beta. Check it out.
