I noticed some compatibility issues between opening a document orignally written in OO with KOffice. This was maybe six or seven months ago. If not already improved, I would like to see this done. OO is nice, but a little big and bloated for my tastes and needs.

We have improved OpenDocument support very significantly in the past six, seven months. Really, really significantly. That's not to say we're 100% done -- bugfixes and improvements keep coming daily -- but we're pretty good already. And, please, note that OpenOffice doesn't implement OpenDocument completely nor completely correctly either. Problems (such as with bulletted lists) may also be on their side.

Thanks for the update. The biggest problem I had was footnotes being formated properly. I have always been a Gnome guy, but I have been using Kanotix lately, and I think KDE is slowly growing on me. Keep up the good work.
