KWord 1.6.1 is already a powerful KDE-integrated word processor, but with KDE 4 technologies, KWord 2.0 promises to be among the most powerful free word processors available. Read on for more details."

There isn't much chance of OpenXML support: just supporting the word "standard" takes an estimate 150 man year. And the spreadsheet format is even weirder. Read and enjoy: http://www.robweir.com/blog/2007/01/formats-of-excel-2007.html.

What we're doing is going hell-for-leather for OpenDocument. When KOffice 2.0 will be released, OpenDocument will be available to a certain extent for all office suites, including the MS one -- and OpenDocument has the eminent advantage that it is implementable.
