You should check out SSuite Office for a free word processor. It has almost all the features of Word, and looks and works the same. {except for the ribbons}. Their word processor is called WordGraph.

It is only 12 MB in size. Nice and small :) . Their software also don't need to run on Java or .NET, like so many open source software, so it makes their software very small and efficient.
