I'm looking for a light and simple alternative to Microsoft Word.
- Fast (loads in 2/3 seconds on i7 machine)
- Free or less than $10
- Clean Modern Design (I don't need many options)
- Includes a Comprehensive Spelling and Grammar Check - with potential for multiple languages
- Word and Character Count, for Whole Document and Selection
- Windows 10, 32 or 64 bit.
I'm kind of looking for a program that is a combination of Wordpad and Abiword. I love Wordpad, it's fast, simple, looks good, but doesn't have a spell check. I also like Abiword, which is also fast, relatively simple, includes a spell check, but the UI looks like it hasn't been worked on since early 2000s.
