From Alex Payne’s “rules for computing happiness,” here are two that every lawyer should consider when selecting office software:

  • Use software that does one thing well.
  • Do not use software that does many things poorly.

There are plenty more, and while you may disagree, they provide good food for thought.

I agree with most, although I think a Linux or Windows PC is perfectly fine for home computing. Windows is especially great if you enjoy a bloated operating system bogged down by anti-virus software.
