Comments about LibreOffice - Writer as a Alternative to WordPad
Very much like Microsoft Office and Wordpad combined! Extremely easy to use interface and has no limited features! Best of all FREE! Unlike Micro's BS greed, they want you to pay for a better notepad alternative and there it was just sitting around the corners of the net while many of no-brainers like me had no clue such an amazing thing like Libre exist! Thank you very much Libre! You saved not only our time searching further but also saved our wallets!0
Using it to write my novels. Paying for Wordpad isn't necessary as long as I have this software.-4
Suggesting LibreOffice Writer as an alternative to Wordpad is like suggesting a Boeing 787 as an alternative to a Cessna single engine 2 seater.4
No, Libreoffice is like Microsoft Word a tank compared to WordPad. For easy editing simple documents without any frills, Libreoffice is absolutely NOT an alternative! It is quite stupid to suggest this as an alternative; it is one, but by far not a good one.0
I like and use LibreOffice, but MS WordPad is extremely more simple than LibreOffice. A similar programme to WordPad is Abiword.-1

It's not a native stand-alone app. You need to run it in your browser. Should it work as a native app without overloading my poor hardware with a browser, I would consider it a good option.2

Comments about AbiWord as a Alternative to WordPad
Simple and lightweight, but enough for writing a reach formatted text , and everyday use. Not bloated and unless functions. Only those what I need for a letter written to a friend or an office.0
The best WordPad alternative, but the biggest issue on this is that it is flagged as discontinued, at least on Windows. So it's sadly right now no word alternative. If this isn't discontinued, then AbiWord is the perfect alternative to the deprecated WordPad on Windows.0
Its more powerful and can be customized for default fonts. Better version of WordPad. I have been using it for everything great program.4
Smaller footprint, familiar interface, for most general writing, it more than suffices.1
Fastest and lightweight simple text editor bundled with all Windows OS. Just plain text, saves in .txt format. So it has been used by people for long time Since 1980s. Features improved especially since 2018.
