Interesting conversation. Just for the record in case you don't know..
AbiWord saves automatically every n minutes under user control.
AbiWord saves it's documents on the rare occasions it crashes. (We catch
segfaults and save the document.)
AbiWord has unlimited undo/redo
For version 2.2 we will integrate version control into the document file
structure so users can roll backwards and forwards between editing
sessions and different authors.
We also have other cool collaborative features we will debut with
