Editors Review:

AbiWord is an open-source word processing program that gives you the freedom to create and share documents, as well as open documents created in other programs. No matter what type of word processor you're used to, you'll feel right at home with this intuitive program.

Accessible interface: The layout is quite similar to most other word processing programs, so it doesn't take long to figure out where everything is. All font options, editing tools, etc are nicely arrayed across the top of the main document screen, and they include all of the typical items you'd expect.

Editing and file format options: This app comes with a nice set of editing tools, including showing markup, highlighting, and more. You'll also have the option of saving your new or edited document in a variety of formats, including Word, HTML, Rich Text, Text, Encoded Text, Outlook Express Mail, Open Document, Open Office Writer, and Open Office XML.

Scrolling issues: To scroll through documents, you have to use the arrow keys or the buttons on the scroll bar on the side of the screen. Scrolling with the mouse wheel or mousepad didn't work, which isn't a huge problem, but may be inconvenient for some users.

Incomplete documentation: Due to the open-source nature of this program, there is no one complete resource to consult if you run into trouble while using it. You can join a mailing list that functions somewhat like a forum, so you can ask questions and get feedback from other users, but there is no quick Help option.

AbiWord is a straightforward and convenient word processing program. It provides a viable alternative to paid programs like Word, and it still provides just about all of the functionality you're used to no matter what you've used before. The program is completely free, and while it can take a little time to get help if you run into trouble, the familiarity of the interface makes this less of an issue.
