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.

Don't forget though, in the Open Source world almost everything is Beta... maybe that's why they just don't bother.

everything beta, or most development effort goes unpaid, same for most marketing effort, users are needed to test it and devs to fix and extend it..

so here you go, you look at the marketing message of a humble effort to make something that is free for all.. some people try to make a difference.

in the mean time they enjoy coding, and get other less tangible benefits.

i for one think it all looks really slick. user ready and properly attractive.


and to the guy that doesnt like hte icons: if after using them for a while the icons feel really awkward, or hard to distinguish, i'll voice up for sure..

till that time:

bravo.
