Light weight word processing package


Hi folks,

I'm now installing BLFS 6.1 and searching for a light-weight word processing package which can read and edit M$ .doc documents. OOo will be too heavy taking long time to load and occupying huge space.

Any recommendation. TIA

B.R.

I understand Oo beta 2.0 is supposed to be alot faster than
previous versions. Don't know about the space usage.

Noted with thanks.

Do you know "wps" on DSL. I failed to find in on Internet. What is its full name. Whether it is only on DSL package.

TIA
