AbiWord is a free and open source software word processor. The name "AbiWord" (pronounced [æbiː], like the name, "Abby" + [wərd]) is derived from the root of the Spanish word "abierto", meaning "open". AbiWord is a free word processing program similar to Microsoft® Word. It is suitable for a wide variety of word processing tasks. Abiword was originally started by SourceGear Corporation as the first part of a proposed AbiSuite but was adopted by open source developers after SourceGear changed its business focus and ceased development. It now runs on Linux, Microsoft Windows, ReactOS, Solaris, AmigaOS 4.0 (through its Cygnix X11 engine), MeeGo (on the Nokia N9 smartphone), and other operating systems.
