A better word processor than Abiword?

IMHO, abiword sucks. It's too buggy. Openoffice it too large and bloated.

Is there a better word processor out there for GNU/Linux?

I meant an X program...  wink

And also a word processor, not a text editor.

A word processor is just a WYSIWYG (ie: broken) text editor. wink

Re: A better word processor than Abiword?

I tried to use abiword on the day to day basis, but I moved to Open Office, since the default package of abiword doesnt accept jpg or gif images and I didnt had the time to search a way to do it in abiword. So, now I'm using ximian's openoffice.
