Features, Office receives most of the attention among FOSS office suites, but users shouldn't forget that free software includes at least two other word processors: AbiWord, and KWord, part of the KOffice suite. From their inception, both have been playing catch-up with's Writer. But now, after several years of development, AbiWord and KWord are both reaching early maturity. How do Writer, AbiWord, and KWord compare?

One thing which always made me loose it completely if we take MSO is the darn fonts.

If I use Helvetica on my Windows box, Helvetica on the OSX is not the same. This problem occurs with a whole bunch of softwares, and sometimes switching a document back and forth makes the document loose a font and use another one instead because it didn't find the first one.

Is this an issue with any of the 3 mentioned Word processors?
