I looked at the system requirements for Abiword. Pentium preferred but
not required. 16MB RAM. No mention of needing 15-bit or more color. So
I wrote the author asking if he could support 4-bit or 1-bit color.
It is available also for Win95B.
Why does a wordprocessor need 16MB RAM? Steven, have you tried it with
less RAM? I may experiment (mem=12MB when using loadlin?). The laptop
computer I was going to use with BL3 (and possibly Abiword if it can be
made to work with fewer colors) has 12MB RAM.
