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

OOo is so good though. I used abiword a while ago, but the lack of odf pissed me off (most of my documents are in odf). I wanted to move to a faster loading word processor, and it performed great for that. But, odf i lost out on. It's nice there's finally a plugin for odf in linux that may work in the future. But, more luck to them getting the flawed ooxml working. Ooxml will probably only work properly in ms office only. Ooxml sounds like a daunting task. Hopefully ooxml wont be a standard and less emphasis on it wont matter.
