Depending on your discipline you write your scientific papers with either MS Word or you prepare them with a more professional text formatter like LaTeX.
Besides scientific papers scientist produce all kinds of other documents. I often notice that those MS-Word prepared documents have an ugly ragged right side, or have a repugnant flood of white space. With a little more effort it is possible to produce text, even with MS Word, with a professional look. Two aspects are important: hyphenation and justification.
