We really take for granted the functionality of our word processing software. Artists and animators and designers generally assume it will crash. Writers take for granted the autosave. Game designers do not. I don’t have any deep thought about this except that I’m standing over tech support while we unravel a lovely mystery of finnicky fancy program. Never a weekly problem with solid word processors like abiword or the ubiquitous Microsoft wurd.
