LXer: New AbiWord looks solid but suffers from age-old Linux problem

Published at LXer:

In this age of multi-core processors and 3-D desktops, some people still get work done on old resource-strapped single-core machines, thanks to programs like the AbiWord word processor. The latest stable AbiWord 2.6.0 release was unveiled last month, two years after the software's last stable release. Feature-wise, the little cross-platform word processor has closed the gap with heavyweight Writer, but it suffers from the oldest Linux ill of all -- it's a pain to install.
