Abiword for MacOS X 10.3

march 26, 2004

Abiword 2.11 for MacOS X 10.3 has been released. It is still a pre-release version, but works well. It is fast and a great Microsoft Word replacement. You won't get the boatload of "features" that Microsoft Word offers, but I am guessing that it will accomplish 90-95% of the day-to-day word processing tasks that we all do. For the MacOS X platform this serves as the first realy Word replacement program. OpenOffice.org is available for the MacOS X platform, but it runs only under X and is pretty slow. Check out Abiword, you'll be surprised what you'll get out of this piece of free software. There is also a Windows and Linux version available.
