One of the {libre,open}Office products can read RTF documents if that is the concern.

libreoffice should export RTF. And several other editors. Otherwise markdown (with pandoc to make it human readable / meaningful) is probably the new gold standard for text documents. Try the usuals and see, like gedit, kedit / kate?, koffice, I think even wordgrinder exports RTF files.

In the days of OLD you would export RTF because M$ based things could read it pretty universally. Less relevant these days since most things can output PDF without adobe getting in the way (much). Plus RTF was less likely to be blocked by firewalls, email servers, and anti-virus programs.
