KDE While most people focus on Microsoft Office and OpenOffice.org as being each other's competitors, there's a third player in this market: KOffice. While KOffice is obviously geared towards use on KDE, it's available for Windows, Mac OS X, and GNOME-based distributions as well, making it much more platform-independent than Microsoft's Office suite. Version 2.0.0 was released today, and comes with a whole boatload of improvements.

KDE has a lot going for it, but even now, well into the 4.x series, I feel like it needs some UI polish. Gnome and OSX both seem careful to minimize the clicks and selections to get things done while KDE seems to keep imitating Windows. Oh sure, you can theme it pretty well, even customize it, but that great reusable framework perpetuates a Windows-influenced design.

So close to excellence, just noticeably not there.
