AbiWord was removed with RHEL3 (so it's also not in CentOS 3 and
newer) if I remember correctly, because they wanted to cut down on
the number of text editors. I haven't found a third party repository
yet that has abiword for current RHEL/CentOS versions (and I don't
like installing software that's not managed by yum).
