One could argue that it saves time if someone else can name off the top
of their head the solution they have found best, rather then spending
time sifting through possible solutions and possibly choosing one that
does NOT work best...
Just playing devil's advocate :-)

Abiword, openoffice, Koffice? Is koffice usable in ports?
Are you just trying to manipulate the documents or edit them with open
source packages? The best answer would be open office, in my
experience...plus open office (OO.o) is cross-platform. Linux,
Windows, OS X (although I think they need a new version released for OS
X soon...I hope they will, anyway), freeBSD...
