AbiWord is a free word processing program similar to Microsoft Word. It is suitable for typing papers, letters, reports, memos, and so forth. Enjoy your favorite Word Processor on the operating system you like to use - be it Windows, Linux, QNX, FreeBSD or Solaris.

AbiWord has been designed to integrate perfectly with the operating system it runs on. It will take advantage of the functionality provided by the system, such as image loading or printing capabilities.

"The Worst Word Processor on the Market"

ABI Word contains so many problems that I do not recommend it. First, there is no envelope function. Secondly, the fonts (even common ones like Arial and Times Roman) print very odd. Thirdy, when I convert documents to PDFs the font conversion makes the entire document hard to read. Fourth, when I copy and paste from Notepad, the entire document reformats and only pieces and parts will paste. I am using Windows 7 and doing simple text. If ABI Word will not work on simple text, it is not worth the time to download.
