Um.

Word procs are for writing, not opening .doc files.

Were that the main criterion, I'd have to go with catdoc.

I write all my papers in LyX.

TeXmacs needs to be in this poll somewhere as well.

I use OpenOffice, but Abiword is great too... I voted for OOo Writer because it works better with some of the more exotic fonts I've got on my system.

But Abiword is soooo fast - OOo Writer is so reliable ... it's gonna be a close run.. so much good software

another for latex. i can't stand the way oowriter, kword, and abiword treat the letters on the page. kerning is a joke in oowriter, and nonexistant in the others... hyphenation is mediocre in all of them, and worst in kword. tried textmaker, and it's just as bad (though i haven't tried hyphenation, kerning doesn't seem to exist).

i'd use lyx/texmacs, but every time i do, i find myself wanting the (faster and more controllable) text editor interface. i'd rather put Kile in this list.

OO writer despite the slowness. At least it opens everything.

Another one for Latex here. I write in Vim with a Latex plugin and a spell checker plugin.

I use Textmaker .. but its not listed
Its not perfect but it feels much nicer and often faster than the rest.
