i hate to even respond to something like this but I will make an exception.

You show at least basic signs of intelegence so you know then probly these 2 things.

1. fighting fire with fire isn't foing to solve anything here.

2. if you rnot the one running the site your not the one calling the shots. quite frankly all our acounts and privilages are at the fingers of a few people.

So to recap you best bet it to make peace and not pour fuel on the fires.

I apologize for feeding the trolls.

They probably detected that you're using Vista...

so...? Are you dumb or what?
geez, I'm using vista... I can't use dynamic ip (which is provided by ip) and I can't use proxy (hell! vista doesn't support proxy configuration)...

Shame on you, dumbass ;)

It would have been nice to see a Koffice/OOo joint SOC project to work on getting both suites to render the same Oasis document identically. As long as we don't have two office suites capable of using the format equally and compatibly, Oasis offers only theoretical advantages over other formats vis--vis freedom of choice in office suite used. That is to say, whichever office suite I use, I can still only reliably share documents with other people using the same suite.

BEHAVE Thom Herbal!!!!!!!

This "Thom Herbal" stuff is not clever. It's not funny. It's just dumb. I for one have no problem with the idea that people who consistently post dumb stuff should eventually be prevented from doing so. In short, you are bringing it on yourself.

KOffice and OO.o do communicate a lot about differences in rendering documents. http://dot.kde.org/1188249220/1188263187/1188286833/1188291666/1188...

What Koffice really needs...

Those guys have added some awesome looking stuff, and given the KDE framework and potential for integration, I think Koffice has the potential to be a winner.

However, what Koffice really needs is feature freeze and stability. Regardless of how many cool features are added, an office suite is unusable unless it is reliable and consistent. This is something that Koffice has yet to archive. And when I say this, I speak from my own experiences with it and with reference to the experience of others.

Frankly, Supercalc running on a 286 is generally of more use than a spreadsheet that crashes every few minutes.

This is a point that the Linux community needs to accept: an unreliable, inconsistent program is of no use for serious work. Perhaps, people who work in business could explain to their customers that there will be a delay because the program they use is conceptually very interesting, but in practical terms, nearly unusable.

Koffice looks great and has a lot of potential and want to dump Open Office and switch over, but I can't.

Well, they of course will do a feature freeze for the 2.0 release, which is targeted together with (or a bit later than) KDE 4.0, so - a few months to go.

The second Beta for KDE 4.0 will come out soon, and KOffice will join it with their own.
