The point is that I need to be able to actually edit files, not just
view them. The great thing about OOo is that it is highly compatible
with Word and other formats as well as OpenDocument, so one
application would serve a lot of uses.

I tried the latest version of Abiword on my desktop with kubuntu, and
it can't even open the most rudimentary of my files, so I don't think
it's worth attempting on my N800.
