Features, Office The Calligra Office Suite has announced its second snapshot release. The project, which is a fork of KOffice, is building a suite of productivity and creativity applications and is working towards its first formal end-user release due in October. The project is seeking feedback from end users particularly in the area of usability of the GUI. With this snapshot Calligra Office Words is claiming better compatibility with .docx than LibreOffice, and also claims to be approaching the best compatibility with legacy .doc formats.

Its not using something completely different, it's a bug in Qt making it look terrible. You have to turn off hinting and anti aliasing so it can look "normal". The bug probably will never be fixed as both Calligra and Nokia are throwing the ball at each other since years.
