Abiword.

masand, there is a separate category for office suites. I think this category only deals with word processors alone.

oowriter. It's .doc isn't always right between different operating systems but at least it opens all of them and most of the time they look good.

AbiWord has what I need and is so much faster and slicker. I only use OOo for larger projects that require integration and a higher level of structure. AbiWord shines on the 600MHz laptop.

OOo!

The loading time is much less annoying than it used to be, and I have played with the OOo-2.0-beta-1.9.62 and I think it will establish a huge lead in the WP department once it appears!

Thumbs up

oowriter got my vote. Even though its dog slow to load up it has everything I need and I have had no trouble using .doc files from Word and viewing in oowriter.

antiword should be up there. It's not an editor but you can convert the .doc into something else so you can read it in EMACS!
