Can't find a thread for this, but I've been trying AbiWord for some time now and would like to give a bit of feedback, (if this is the right place to do so).
A few weeks ago I installed it to my handset, although I was a bit taken aback at how much memory it took up as none of it was installed to opt, I was pretty impressed and actually gave my N900 a major task by applying for a job online, attaching my CV, (which was edited in AbiWord) and typing out a covering letter in AbiWord also, which was all sent along with the online application form.
I found it a bit quirky to use, but I think this was down to the fact that I was using a 3.5" screen instead of a 19"
However since the last update of the app I find it is now barely usable.
The problems I'm now having are:
Crashes back to desktop after trying to open .pdf documents (AbiWord seems to hang for about 30 secs first).
Consumes 100% CPU time during and after the above. (Need to reboot the device to clear things).
Generally very unstable and unpredictable.
I'm aware that it's still very much in development and that's why it's in the "Extras devel" repository, but thought I'd give some feedback for future reference.
