Re: IBM Lotus Symphony turns old OOo code into enterprise Judas goat

Yep, I like AbiWord, too, and I use it plenty. It's a mighty fine, lightweight word processor.

However, these folks know what the MS Office suite is. No spreadsheet, no presentation, and not quite as good MS Word file format fidelity if you go w/ AbiWord. You give them close enough to what they know and want...or they go pirate MS Office, which is not what we want. They can handle "slow loading", as long as they can actually load it.
