"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."
