Question WordPerfect alternatives

I like WordPerfect but are there any simple alternatives to it? I want a simple word processing program that only has the standards and has the below:

-spell checker
-is free
-has smilies

Basically, I just want one with the above and that's fast loading and crud free. Simple but effective.

There are cheaper ways of getting MS word...

(An old version will be fine from your previous PC.)
