    Light weight word processing package

    Hi folks,

    I'm now building BLFS 6.1 and searching for a light-weight word processing package which can read and edit M$ .doc documents. OOo will be too heavy taking long time to load and occupying huge space.

    Some people suggested AbiWood. Is there any other recommendation. TIA

    AbiWord is a good choice, used by many of the liteweight distros. For more choices, check Sourceforge and
    //got nothin'
    ///this use to look better

    Damn Small Linux has a very lightweight word processor but I don't recall the name. You might download it (only 50MB) and take a look for some really lightweight apps.

    Hi folks,

    Tks for your advice.

    I used AbiWord and KOffice about 3~4 years ago, before turning to StarOffice and then OOo. At that time they did not work well on M$ Word .doc document. I did not know their present editions. Besides I'm not going to install KDE nor Gnome as desktop. TextMaker is good but not Open Source.

    I'll take a look on Damn Small Linux, Sourceforge and Freshmeat. Tks
