Glad you mentioned it!!

I use AbiWord as well as OpenOffice... OpenOffice is nice too if you need plenty of nice features... As far as I am concerned, OpenOffice is my favorite for communications with those poor Word users... As a matter of fact I was writing all of my resumes with OpenOffice, converted docs to Word format and attached the with my job applications when I was looking for work... 

We've had decent and professional WordProcessing packages for Linux for some time now... :-)

All the best,
