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

Software installing is a function of the software package managers you are using, not part of word processor. Heck, compiling code is part of the development environment you are using, not part of a word processor. If every software package used their own installer, we'd have the absolute mess that is now known as Windows. Luckily with Linux we have the options of easy to use installers and software updates. I would suggest you try using one.
