I think Abiword is not enough and people who work with documents will install OO or Libreoffice anyway.
Have to respectfully disagree with that, Abiword is used as the primary word processor every day here in a business setting, my wife specifically did not want any more MS Office, OO, or LO, she wanted a light word processor and a spreadsheet prog with simple basic cross compatibility with similar programs. She uses Abiword for all business docs now on a daily basis, and also for writing/editing poetry and prose etc.
I agree Abiword is very good, and Gnumeric too. Gnumeric I noticed has also greatly improved cross-compatibility with documents from OOo, LO, and MS suite file types. It's a very good deal too for the people who make distros and remasters, because all office suites use too much space to be provided with an iso less than 700 MB. (Unless you want to provide only that ! ^^)
I very much agree Melodie, Mama uses Gnumeric and highly highly values it over Excel certainly, and even having those programs, proprietary Nvidia drivers, Clementine, SMplayer, Gramps, Clamav, Brasero, Evince, Epdfviewer, Bleachbit, Gnome games, plus Scribus, Gimp, Jpilot, the Citrix Xenapp client, and all other essential office/publishing/graphic programs on her computer, it will still do a re-master that comes in well below 700 mb. Amazing really what linux programmers can do, I am in awe of all of y'all
