I don't like OpenOffice, nothing personal - but I find it slow and
cumbersome to deal with. AbiWord works very well for me - especially
since the 2.0 tree went stable. Fast, easy to use.

In a discussion, someone claimed that AbiWord just was not in the same
"league" as OpenOffice. Not knowing what he does, I couldn't agree or
disagree, but I decided to look for comparisons of the two.

Googling for comparisons of the two, it seems that a lot websites that
compare them worked with old crusty versions of AbiWord, a lot of
functionallity not there is there and has been for some time.

Is there an AbiWord contact person who deals with these kinds of
It's kind of sad that so much out there that high ranks on google is
outdated so severely, often having looked at 1.x branch of AbiWord,
sometimes even earlier -


for example. They don't specify what version of AbiWord is used, but
they link to a 0.9.2 version - which clearly is old.
