Light weight word processor

Hi folks,

DamnSmall Linux is completely new to me. I'm searching for a light-weight word processor which can import/edit M$ .doc file. Please advise which word processor is used on this distro. OR is there any other suggestion. TIA

I am not sure if the wps on dsl can import docs, but the most lightweight one that can is Abiword.

I dont believe the word processor included in dsl (FLWriter) can import/edit word docs. The best at this I believe is open office, but this obviously isnt very lightweight. As stated before your best compromise would probably be Abiword.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
