KDE "Many KDE users tend to take the Konqueror Web browser for granted, but that's a mistake. Konqueror may not be able to replace Firefox as a Web browser for every site, but it does a lot more than just simple browsing."

"KOffice was started in 1998, openoffice wasn't a gleam in Sun's eye at that point."

OpenOffice is actually the open-sourced version of the old StarOffice... which started way before KOffice, and way before Sun bought it.

StarOffice wasn't open.

I realize this. But We didn't have OpenOffice when they started KOffice. That's my point.

KOffice is not an answer to OO.o at all.

KOffice was started before Open Office (that was the point), and Open Office doesn't have the functionality and depth to the suite that KOffice does.

You may wish KOffice to be ditched in favour of the limited bloatware that is Open Office, but fortunately there is more than enough good things in KOffice for it to be continued and for it to really come good.
