Abiword is Awesome

,----[ Quote ]
| While it’s true that Abiword doesn’t have all the features of MS Word or 
| OpenOffice.org Writer, it does have all the features I have ever wanted in a 
| word processor, and the small footprint works out really well for my new Dell 
| Mini 9.  For an interesting interview with the developers of Abiword, 
| including more on the Collaboration Plugin and ODT support, and more on 
| AbiCollab.net, check out this article from Red Hat Magazine.  And if you 
| didn’t know, Abiword is Free Software and it can be downloaded at no cost 
| here.

AbiWord project gets funding for ODF improvements

,----[ Quote ]
| The AbiWord project has announced that NLnet is providing funding to
| facilitate the development of improved OpenDocument (ODF) filters in AbiWord.

| interoperability with OpenOffice.org (OOo).


AbiWord: How To Start Word Processing in Two Seconds Flat

,----[ Quote ]
| AbiWord is a light-weight, open-source word processor that works under Linux,
| Mac OSX and Windows. Its layout will feel familiar to anyone who has used a
| word processor before, and you will find most things where you first look for
| them.


Competing With Microsoft Office, With a Dash of Help from Redmond

| Word processor. Let's start with AbiWord, my favorite open source word
| processor. It came out in a great new version earlier this year, and is not
| only totally compatible with Microsoft Word, but it even sports an interface
| very similar to Word's. It's clean, with straightforward menus and toolbars,
| and as you exchange files back-and-forth with Word users, you won't run into
| problems such as incorrectly formatted tables. AbiWord also supports Open
| Document Format (ODF), for completely open document sharing.



Abiword: One Lean, Mean, Word Processing Machine

,----[ Quote ]
| Abiword fills that void for Windows users, and it does so amazingly well.
| That makes it ideal not as a replacement word processing program, but rather
| as a useful -- and eventually, indispensable -- addition to any
| small-business software library.


Abiword 2.6 -- You've come a long way, baby!

,----[ Quote ]
| I'll never forget attending the first LinuxWorld trade show in San Francisco
| in 1999, and getting a marketing hand-out from the Abiword team that was
| printed on re-used office paper. Almost 10 years later, the nimble Word clone
| has gotten to be "as good as they come," writes Myank Sharma in a detailed
| Linux.com review.


New Version of AbiWord: A Free, Robust Word Processor

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, many users will be impressed with this new version of an
| award-winning word processor, and this app is now mature enough that, say, a
| small business can easily standardize on it for free without running into
| compatibility woes, and benefit from very complete cross-platform support.  


AbiWord v2.5.0 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| The AbiWord team is very proud to announce AbiWord v2.5.0, the
| first snapshot of the development that will lead to AbiWord 2.6.
| This snapshot allows interested developers, testers and users a
| sneak preview into the future of AbiWord.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
