true, but only the Wordpad versions from Windows 2000 and later can properly view certain Microsoft Word documents created in MS Word 97-2003. The Wordpad program from older versions of Windows (like Win95/98/ME/NT4) can't correctly view MS Word docs created in MS Word 97/2000/2002/2003. So for those using older versions of Windows, Word Viewer or OpenOffice is still required to view MS Word docs made in newer formats that even Wordpad alone can't understand.
note that MS Word 2007, 2010 & higher use the .DOCX format by default, not .DOC.
