AbiWord is a free word processing program similar to Microsoft Word. It is suitable for typing papers, letters, reports, memos, etc. It is 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.

to echo what jaynbe said
time moves on but abiword has not
less than 0 star.
Reviewing 2.8.6 (Jul 21, 2010)
Still installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable-x86 9.0.21022 (2007 version)
wich has been updated twice for critical security flaws to version 9.0.30729 (in 2009)
The installer doesn't even detect the presence of the latest redistributable installed!
Reviewing 2.8.3 (Apr 7, 2010)
Yes, the VC redist stuff is really messed up, and hopefully this bug report will be acted upon some day:
Otherwise, this app isn't bad.
Reviewing 2.8.2 (Apr 3, 2010)
Agree with AOKsider
Moreover doesn't even check for installed C++ Redist. files and installs an older distro aside the newer version.

I like Abiword, it's fast to start, works on windows and linux equally well. and for 99% of what I use a work processor for.. it does the job perfectly well.
For 99% or maybe even 100% of the things that most (average) users will ever need from a word processor is in there already.
Better m$ Office compatibility would be well appreciated though
