Abiword
http://www.abisource.com/download/

OpenOffice.org 3
http://www.openoffice.org/

Of the two, Abiword is more basic and very light on resources.

Just remember to save as "Microsoft Word (.doc)", or else others will not be able to open documents sent from you.

Choose File|Save As|'Microsoft Word (.doc). When you save in .doc format, all versions of Microsoft Office can open your file, as well as AbiWord and OpenOffice.
