Interesting Andy.

We want to build a word processor that is aimed specifically at academics. We all come from a Mac dev background but we think there is a real need for a credible alternative to Word on the Windows platform.

If WPF and .NET can help us achieve our aims then so much the better. It seems very exciting, but is as yet unproven for the kind of work I'm talking about.

We're getting a feel for all the different technologies on Windows so we're ruling nothing in or out at this stage.
