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

Not lightweight, costs a decent amount of money. In short, not suitable if you only need something comparable to MS Wordpad.5
It isn't cheap. And it may be heavier to load than Wordpad. Otherwise, it is a great option.1
Wordpad comes with Windows, but Word is commercial and has more features than Wordpad. Word may have more features, but is slower, while Wordpad is super lightweight and simple. I'm looking for a lightweight and fast word processor for Linux so I can write quick RTF documents when I don't need the advanced features of a full-fledged word processor, like Wordpad for Windows.0
is a superset of wordpad so yes you can use word to fully replace word pad.-3
