AbiWord...

It's small, nice and can export .doc files. (which KWord can't).
And it prints the letters correctly (which KWord dosn't).

I would vote for LyX if it were here...

It may not be a traditional "word processor" but this is the closest category that it belongs in...

For me its a toss-up between oowriter and kWord, but since I've been using kWord a bit more, that's where my vote goes.

I would have said Open Office a few months ago but several older workhorse office boxes lost the plot with OOo and were more than happy with Abiword. It does everything I need it to do --- except when it doesn't and that's when I choose OOo.

For my work, I use LaTeX .
Sometimes I use OOwriter
when I need a *.doc file or Abiword for a
confortable and small work.

kWord, kOffice.

Easy to use, fast, looks good, and frame-based.

Plus, it's a PURE Linux app.
