Re: [vox] word processing software (was: visio on linux)

Quoting Henry House (hajhouse@houseag.com):

AbiWord rocks a bit more with every passing day -- and still only
requires 6 MB of RAM to launch.  Incredible.  About the only really
notable word processor feature it's missing is table support, which
they deferred until after the recent 1.0 milestone.  Last I heard,
that code was in CVS, and being tested.
