 AbiWord: Open Source's Answer to Microsoft Word

O'Reilly reviews AbiWord.

"This isn't a word processor that's been stripped down to the bare essentials, like a simple text editor. Although the AbiWord development team is currently working towards their milestone Version 1.0, the beta releases already come with a number of useful features: support for plug-ins and scripts, a spell checker, 2- and 3-column text formatting, and image importing. For other languages besides English, multilingual spell checking is in place, as is bidirectional text for languages that are written from right to left."
