I really liked that I was able to UPX compress the Abiword.exe and put it
on a single floppy disk. there is still a certain amount of wiggle room
but that I'm fixated by that little benchmark.
If you've read many of the reviews and user comments on freeware download
sites like CNet or TUCOWS there are a great many people who appreciate a
really small light version and it is certainly a nice extra feature to
tick off on the list of nice features.
It is not a very important issue but it is the only reason I have to care
about abiword being a few Megabytes or 50 Megabytes more on windows.
