Cool. By all means, hadn't I left my charger in the capital I'd have tried that out this weekend. As it is, I'll have to update the cvs tonight and check it out.

We'll need a faq on it, because people *will*ask* for tablers. If at least there's a reasonable workaround, they might buy it.

I understand that. What I mostly don't like at all is giving end users a wrong idea of the state of AbiWord. That will hurt our image more than delaying a 1.0 untill it's ready.

Mandrake (the nick not the distro) doesn't feel Enlightenment to be ready (and it exists, I believe) for a longer time than Abi. There's more software like that.
