Couple of thoughts.

First, OpenOffice.org just released the first preview release of OOo 2
yesterday; it's much slicker than 1.1.3. You might want to check it out.

Second, I've tried WP 8 for Linux; it was simply unacceptable.  It
crashed frequently and failed to work smoothly, and the installation
files on the disk were incomplete (I had to download an extra script of
the WordPerfect site to get it running).

I think that OpenOffice.org (the suite's proper name) or AbiWord are
probably your best bets.
