7 of the Best Free Linux Document Processors

7 of the Best Free Linux Document Processors

A document processor is a document preparation system. Unlike a word processor, this type of application leads the author to concentrate on the structure of the document rather than its appearance. The author therefore focuses on what he/she wants to say, instead of fretting over page borders, font attributes, or formatting. Moreover, the author will be guided in the organisation, structure, and flow within the document.

The software featured in this article all produce high quality professional documents. The majority of them rely on LaTeX as their rendering engine. LaTeX is a distinguished typesetting system which is designed for the production of scientific and technical documentation. It employs beautifully crafted typesetting algorithms. Academic journals will often accept submission in this format.

However, document processors are not only of practical use to technical authors and scientists. This type of application will help self-publishers to produce high grade documents, which survive translation into multiple formats.

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 7 high quality Linux document processors. Hopefully, there will be something of interest for anyone who wants to make their writing look great.

Now, let's explore the 7 document processors at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, providing a screenshot of the software in action, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
