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?

Open Office takes too long to start

Open Office may take a while to start but it's still a lot faster than booting into Windows just to write a document ;)

Isn't this what Crossover Office was designed for?

I've used it for years, it works great.
