Don't like it, libreoffice is much better
It isn't resource hungry and you can arrange neat texts with it and it's cross platform. very good.
to be honest, I've used on PC's before.. and can transfer pages between PC AND Mac.. Nice Lightweight app..
Not as good as LibreOffice.
Nice and lite
Good but could be better. I can use it in every day task and it do everything i need.
Light but complete junk.
It have some problems, I prefer LibreOffice
Cross platform is helpful, small footprint nice, updates not in LTS repository unfortunate
Libre Office is now my favorit
Great alternative to Open Office writer better desktop intergration
WAY better than OpenOffice Writer.
Abiword is simply a fantastic word processor. I write documents using Abiword almost daily for internal company and personal use, and external publication/presentation documents. Abiword has become my "goto" word precessing software. It provides all the features that are commonly use and makes then easily accessible. Other reviews have pointed out that it does not have all of the features of OpenOffice, and that is true. But, even though I have OpenOffice installed I simply always use Abiword for documents. It loads quickly, is stable, and has enough advanced formatting to meet my needs. I believe that this package will reaily meet the needs of 99% of the people 99.9% of the time. Personally, I have yet to miss anything. This is a "Must try" word processor
AbiWord 2.8.2 doesn't allow to edit texts. The key 'Backspace' deletes not only one character but several following words too! Or even the whole paragraph! Never use the version 2.8.2! Try 2.6.8 if you do need this editor.
Apparently one cannot change the default font! Either this is true and then it's really bad, or a user can do it, but it's some ridiculously complicated process. Apps shouldn't be like that in this day and age.
fast,light weight and easy to use.
Great word processor. Much lighter weight than OpenOffice. Especially ideal for those with limited system resources.
It is very close to Microsoft Word 2003. Light & easy to use. The only sin of Abiword is that it doesn't support ODF file format at all.
