AbiWord

Abiword is the default word processor in many versions on Puppy. It is part of the GNOME Office suite of programs. Not to be be confused with simpler text editors like Geany. LibreOffice may be more suitable if you require an advanced office suite.

Installation
AbiWord is included in most Puppies, however to has a missing library. Download and install the libaspell15-0.60.6-10.pet package, more info in the forum thread.

Puppy Menu > Document > Document/Publishing > AbiWord

AbiWord is capable of many wordprocessing tasks. It can open most industry standard document types, such as OpenOffice, MS Word, WordPerfect, Rich Text Format and HTML. It can save most formats, but can not save in MS Word binary .doc format.

Limitations
Abiword is okay for small documents but becomes unreliable after documents get bigger than about fifteen pages.
