Fast Word Processor?

Anyone know of a good quality, fast word processor that supports SuSE Linux? Open Office takes up too much memory and has so much trouble saving documents.

I agree with UltimaGuy. Abiword works well on Windows / Linux and is very lightweight.

Personally, AbiWord seems somewhat deprecated to me, and as much as I like Kate/KWrite, how is that comparable to Writer? I think what they really need is KWord (part of KOffice). AbiWord's fine if you're a Gnome fanatic (as opposed to a KDE bigot like me ).
