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.

"Free software is completely able to generate and faithfully re-open the files, in many alternative formats,..."

Is there a name for this private fantasy world of yours?

People every day struggle to open even the most basic .doc files. For any business, this is completely unacceptable. Say what you want or believe what you want, but as long as 100% .doc conversion isn't made the #1 priority by these project, nobody will use these open source office suites for serious work. I'm sorry, but that's just the way it is.
