    I'm looking for the best software to use when writing articles and ebooks like a good way that corrects grammar issues and spelling problems and such. For example when your typing in Microsoft word, it will let you know when theres a fragment or run-on sentence what is the best software to use instead of Microsoft word?

    So what's wrong with Microsoft Word? What? You want an app that plays porn in a little window? :)

    I second Openoffice. OOo Writer is what I use to create PDFs. However, it doesn't come with a built-in grammar checker. You'd have to download a grammar extension like Afterthedeadline. Ms Office could also be used since it has a great grammar checker. I heard there was an export to PDF plugin available for it, but I have never tried it.
