Simple tasks like writing things down, fair number of fonts, sizes, saving option, printing, tables, pictures, bold, italics, underline, numbering, bullets, inserting pictures, little stuff like that.
Essentially, it’s like a free and small version of Word. It’s amazing that it can do small things like that.
It’s also pretty customizable, as you can go to the Live Gallery site and download plug-ins.
Best of all, it’s FREE. And NO ADS. If somebody really needs to do word processing, and Word isn’t available, Live Writer is a great alternative. Compared to that OpenOffice crap.
