Word processing component of Office 2007.
Typing, fonts, ribbon functions, footnotes, etc.
What does not
Chinese characters cannot be typed into Word by ibus or scim.
Opening files with Asian language characters inside sometimes results in unreadable text.
Copying and pasting Chinese characters from OOo to Word did not work, but it did work when copying from Firefox, so there are possibly some encoding issues.
When switching between other programs, Word seems to freeze up sometimes.
What was not tested
Integration with other Office software.
Many many other features.
For those working only in English, or possibly other European languages, Word 2007 may deserve a Silver or higher rating. However, language support issues make it near to unusable for those working in Asian languages.
