Re: Whats a free "Microsoft Word" clone with good spell check ? - 01-30-2009, 09:17 PM
You might check out abiWord(http://portableapps.com/apps/office/abiword_portable) which is lite freeware application that is MS-Word compatible. The install size is between 9-18 MB. And there's also OpenOffice (www.openoffice.org) but that might be a heavier install.

I downloaded abiWord on my home computer ,
its a very quick download because of its small size ,
but it seems to have everything I need , so I think that one has been solved,
There are also many other small scale programs at (http://portableapps.com/apps/office/abiword_portable) and once I get my Mini I will be using a few of them

I recommend free Softmaker Office 2006:
It also performs much better than MSO (or OO) on SSD drives.
Installation occupies abt 40MB.
