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

1. IMO, if AbiWord doesn't support Unicode on Windows, it is better not to release it for this platform at all.
2. I agree with all the posters saying that first-class built-in ODF support is essential. The last time I checked the export plugin, it was not really compatible with OOo's interpretation of the format (granted, that was a long time ago). So I am disappointed that the article does not elaborate on its performance, and also presents the MSOF plugin as equally important to ODF.
