It's the only word processor on the Mac where you can paste in text  
and then edit it by voice (after "Cache Document" command). For some  
people this is an incredibly valuable feature.

For those of us who prefer to mix voice and fingers, any other word  
processor is better. I used the ViaVoice notepad because that was the  
only place I could do correction at all. With Dictate, correction is  
easy in almost any program (some insert extra characters or do other  
weird things).
