"Screw that" is saying a bit much, but, well, yes, essentially trying to create perfect support for MS file formats is an impossible goal. It would eat up all our time.

But that does not make it useless: there are other uses for an office suite than collaborating on MS Office documents.

Creating new documents, for instance. Writing papers and letters. Preparing a brochure with some illustrations that you'll be distributing as a pdf file. Managing small projects with a dozen team members. Preparing a presentation yourself. Creating an network map or a flowchart. Calculating the yearly balance sheet for church. Editing, cropping and scaling holiday snaps. Constructing a logo for a blog. Plenty of things for which KOffice works perfectly fine.
