When was the last time you try to view MS document only to be disappointed because the current msoffice in your PC can’t read the MS document usually in docx format as it is created using the latest MS Office 2007 and 2010. You need to download docx viewer and not everybody has immediate access to the internet. Again not everyone has the money to upgrade their current MS office every time a new version came out (if you do, Bill Gates will be very happy because you make money for him and that how he became the richest man on earth).

Well enough with MS office, let us focus on AbiWord instead. AbiWord is an open source application and it is a free word processing program similar to Microsoft® Word. Although not as famous and outstanding compare to MSoffice but hey it FREE and it is good enough for typing papers, letters, reports, memos, and so forth. For those who do not have the budget and refuse to use pirated MS office then AbiWord is the answer.

The good thing about AbiWord is that it is able to read and write all industry standard document types, such as documents, Microsoft Word documents, WordPerfect documents, Rich Text Format documents, HTML web pages and many more. Now that what I call universal word processor.

Unlike MS office, you can’t read OTD format. I once write a report using openoffice and I became very stressful instead (nearly going banana) because I am unable to view and print the document using my friend’s PC that has a printer and MS office installed.
  • Use tables, bullets, lists, images, footnotes, endnotes and styles to enhance the way your document    looks.
  • AbiWord is available in most common and many not-so-common languages.
  • Built-in spelling checker. Dictionaries exist for over 30 languages.
  • Supports right-to-left, left-to-right, and mixed-mode text.
  • Mail Merge capabilities.
  • A variety of plugins can be used to extend AbiWord´s functionality, ranging from Document Importers to a Thesaurus, Image Importers and a Text Summarizer.
