wordperfect, the (very) short description doesn't sound too bad,

Yes, I'm not going to be all that good at figuring out the difference
before hand myself. Sigh.
However, I did try AbiWord this afternoon and it is not exactly what
the doctor ordered (no macros or templates) but it is opensource,

It just works, right out the "box". I like that a lot. It is also
fast, simple, clean, and easy to use.
I'm sure I can mangle something together having access to the source code!
