comment Best Grammar checking software
microsoft word is at least as well known for approving bad grammar and disproving good grammar as it is known for having a grammar checker. At one point I was reading requests for a word-processor for Linux and all the recommendations were dismissed as not having a grammar checker, which was rebutted with "so that explains why you can't write." A bad grammar checker can be worse than no grammar checker.
