Word 3.0 is a very obsolete version, several years old.  I wouldn't
get it.  It's missing a lot of the nice new features like graphics
import and a usable speller.  Even though I prefer Word to Word
Perfect, if I wanted a program for my Unix box I'd go with Word
Perfect because the vendor acts a lot more like they're serious
about supporting and maintaining it.
