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?

Member since:

Betas tend to be slower then production products, because they usually have bug reporting/diagnostic stuff turned on by default. All that stuff slows down the program and is striped out for the final builds. Of cource that might not be the case here, just something to consider.
