Whether we?re typing out a quick memo or writing a letter to a friend, word processors are invaluable tools that provide the means to draft documents when needed. Word is the most widely used solution in this regard, but it?s packaged with Microsoft Office, a software suite that includes a host of other applications ? Excel, Powerpoint, etc. — that you may not require.
Free and easy to use, Abiword is an alternative for those who need just a word processor, freeing your computer from needless software that?s along for the ride.
Abiword works with every major operating system:
After editing a Word document at work, Abiword can continue editing it at home, allowing for seamless transitioning between the two formats.
This is a nice solution for those looking to keep their system limited to the barest essentials. If you ever have any questions about its use, feel free to contact one of us.
