    AbiWord is a free word processing program similar to Microsoft® Word. It is suitable for typing papers, letters, reports, memos, and so forth.


    Microsoft Office and Open Office can be bloated at times. This is a simple, stable, and effective Word Processor replacement.

    Looks interesting.

    Is it as powerful as Open Office as far as options from a user's perspective are concerned?

    There is not any detail about Microsoft Office in general that isn&#39;t bloated, IMO.

    Thanks, Shn&#33; Very nice.

    Actually Abi word has been around for a long time.

    M&#036; Office and Openoffice are bloated.

    • M&#036; office has miscellaneous office services start up on boot. For the most part they are to keep the startup times to a minimum for people that use office apps frequently.
    • Openoffice has a quickstarter to reduce startup times as well.

    A prime example of bloated.................Mozilla has a quickstarter to decrease startup times. Firefox does not. Because firefox is faster, and thus, not bloated.

    Not everyone needs a full office suite just to write a simple document. Abiword is much more powerful than MS word, Openoffice Writer, and wordpad. In order for M&#036; word or Openoffice writer to be any better it would have to rely on other components in the office suite itself, which Abiword already has built into one application not a suite.
