"Being a lifelong Cubs fan, I am very familiar with the mantra "wait until next year," having said it every September since I was old enough to pick up a baseball mitt. And it would be very easy to say something like that here about KWord.

After all, this is a relatively young application. It needs more time to grow and mature. And this is all true.

But how much longer is this going to take?

This is a viewpoint that will not make me a lot of friends in the Linux community and I can live with that. Without neglecting to acknowledge the incredible efforts of the open source developers that have gotten us this far with KOffice on what must amount to a shoestring budget, I have to say that as a consumer, I am getting a bit cynical about opening up a Linux product and being disappointed with the results.

Harsh? You bet, but this is the truth nonetheless."
