Better, I don’t know. But openoffice is a good alternative. Or maybe abiword.

Another vote for OpenOffice – best word processing there is, free or not!

I can’t stand OpenOffice myself – on PC I like using Google Docs

I like OpenOffice, with a close second by Google Docs. I haven’t tried the offline version of Google Docs. What I like about these two apps is the fact that you can save as a MSWord document if you need it (e.g., some employers require any attachments, such as resumes, to in MSWord format.)

Better than? No.

Bareable? OpenOffice.

Uh… I love Abiword, in a twisted sense of the word “love”. Abiword is simple, and doesn’t pop up with stupid,‘do you want to make a bulleted list?’ crap. OpenOffice is great though, yeah. OxygenOffice is based on that, but with more shiny-ness.
