Re: What is GNOME office?

One thing needs to be said about Abi: Abi is as GNOME compliant as
StarWord can be in the short term: they do not use GNOME libraries
internally, they do not depend on it.

Abi is a cross platform project that has little to do with GNOME,
except that they do have a "port" to GNOME.

On top of that, you have to factor in the fact that Abi is not really
very robust.  Back in the early days of Helix, when we were looking
toward creating an entire office suite, it was obvious that we would
have to start a new word processing effort for GNOME, as Abi did not
fit the requirements to go against an offering like Microsoft Word.
