"As AbiWord evolves, it becomes a serious alternative
to commercial products for more and more people. We see the
download counts increase for each new release, and the volume of
traffic on the mailing lists is growing. That's lovely, of course.
We work on AbiWord as a volunteer effort, so whenever a new user
finds "our baby" worthwile, we rejoice.
Unfortunately, it's not all roses we receive. With wider public
interest and more users, there's bound to be people who are
disappointed in AbiWord. We believe, however, that it's only
because most newcomers do not realize what to expect - hopefully
this text will set that right."
