I'm looking for a word-processor application which is good enough for academic papers. I've been using the word-processor part of NeoOffice for several years now, but find it a pain to use with its ugly user interface and slow response. And I really don't need a whole office suite for this. Having searched the web it seems that Mellel or Nisus writer Express/Pro are good apps I should look into, but I really can't find any recent comparison reviews. What do you guys suggest I get?
