I use it at home, and I have to say that I am impressed... but then
again I am a OS tinkerer, and I like recompiling my Linux kernel to
tweak it to be just a bit faster than before.

As a first release, it is a really good start. It is very Frame-like in
in's feel once you start using it. It does definitely need a version or
two more before it could be seriously considered for use in the tech
writing environment. I have had it crash for no apparent reason once or
twice... but then again, KDE2 could be the culprit - it is almost bug
free.. ;-) I am working on getting KDE2 up and running on my SUN
Ultra10 here at work, and then I will give KWord a try with a few
technical documents and see how it holds up.
