AbiWord ported to Intel Mac

32 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Well, I just spent the last 3 hours porting AbiWord. It was damn hard, but it's working, and you can get it here.

 

In fact, I didn't have to change a single line of code, but AbiWord's build system is so badly built that it was almost impossible to get everything right.

 

Enjoy it, I sure hope it was worth all this damn trouble. Well, at least you can now use a native word processor without X11.

Downloading now... Looks very good as far as I can tell from the website: http://www.abisource.com

 

EDIT: Wow, this app is very good indeed! Liking it very much! Infact, I think this will replace my Microsoft Office Word!

 

I love free applications... :thumbsdown_anim:

Thanks for the port! Abiword used to take like 2 minutes to load now it loads in a couple of seconds!

 

Here are some Before and after Screenshots!

Good work.This is the only fast, and free word processor running on osx86.

I think Mellel is the greatest, and its also unibin now, but unfortunatly shareware.
