ok i can understand that it's. probably it's very anoying as opensource
programmer to hear the whole time what would be nice to have in abiword and
whats less. probably it makes you feel like a slave. afew people who cannot
programming, who type from their computers how it should be and then use it for
ok let me say that i know nothing about programming, so i cannot give a
contribution code, sorry, i am just interested in this project. and actually,
by being subscribed to this list, the first time i felt the feeling to learn
how to program. but anyway, there are even other things to do, i wanted to
start with the italian translation, but we decided to let it do by an native
speaker and he has done it very well. my letter, you did reply to, actually
speaks about distributing abiword. i just wanna know when the official abiword
version is out to be used by a bigger group of people.
so dear bernhard, just see this as my contribution.

no star-office is no alternative. i have the strange feeling that they use the
low price only because they saw the big succes of linux by beeing free.
star-office is very commercial.
