Hi, have used many word processors over the years and want to recommend Ted. The latest release 2.23 is excellent---fast, stable, all the core features: spell checking, image support, tables, font support, basic formatting, export to .ps, .pdf, .svg, .html, .txt, (default file type is .rtf). He, Mark, has improved the program steadily for years. Now it is really fine.

I would use Abiword only for converting .doc or .docx to .rtf for use with Ted and only if I had it installed. Other utilities can do this, too. Abiword works fine until it doesn't, which is all too often. Just my opinion.


I second this; having just installed Ted 2.23 in AntiX, I think it works just fine for producing basic documents such as letter writing.

But there is a free converter program from Microsoft.
