AbiWord is a free and open source software word processor. The name AbiWord (pronounced, like the name, Abby +) is derived from the root of the Spanish word abierto, meaning open. 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, MeeGo (on the Nokia N9 smartphone), and other operating systems. The Mac OS X port has remained on version 2.4 since 2005, although the current version does run non-natively on Mac OS X through X11. app. AbiWord is part of the AbiSource project which develops a number of office-related technologies.
