AbiWord is a text processing tool similar to Microsoft Word. It is ideal for creating, editing and printing documents, messages, letters, memos, etc.

AbiWord is part of a large project known as AbiSource which was started by SourceGear Corporation. Its goal was to develop a cross-platform set of open source office software. The project started with the AbiWord word processor.

AbiWord provides a versatile, cross-platform solution for creating and editing documents in many languages.

Its source code is specifically and carefully written so that AbiWord continues to work on virtually any operating system with a minimum of time spent on porting.

AbiWord is able to work with many languages and this provides it with a huge number of users all over the world.

AbiWord integrates perfectly into the operating system on which it is run and takes advantage of all the functionality provided by the system.

- Fully interoperable with all common formats - works with Microsoft Word documents, OpenOffice.org, WordPerfect, RTF, web pages and many more;

- Advanced document layout options to provide excellent visibility and ease of use of the tools;

- Internationalization - supports working with multiple languages. Includes spell checker and dictionaries for more than 30 languages. Supports Hebrew and Arabic-like languages;

AbiWord is incredibly helpful for college students, office workers, and business owners. It reminds me a lot of other more expensive word/document programs, however unlike a lot of others, this one allows me to work in languages other than English. This is extremely helpful when trying to complete foreign study assignments.

AbiWord is a free, open source word processing software that I've used quite frequently. It has an intuitive, user-friendly interface and basic features that allow the user to easily create documents. I appreciate the fact that it has an autosave feature that can be set to save documents at regular intervals. I also like the ability to insert images and tables into the documents. I have found it to be quite reliable, but some users may find the lack of advanced features to be limiting. It is also not as visually appealing as some of the other word processing software out there. Overall, AbiWord is a good basic word processing program.
