         Microsoft Word is so widely used that many of us forget that there are alternatives. Even though most users only ever use a small percentage of Words potential, they feel uncomfortable using any other word processing applications and end up sticking with what they know. The trouble is that word is not small enough to be taken on the road and if you need an application that can be stored on a USB stick, it may be time to begin looking at other options.

      AbiWord Portable is the lightweight AbiWord word processor packaged as a portable app, so you can edit your documents on the go. You can place it on your USB flash drive, iPod, portable hard drive or a CD and use it on any computer, without leaving any personal information behind.
