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.

Read your own first paragraph, it wasn't needed.

I was disagreeing with Thom's assessment of how koffice was handling their release. How is discussing a point made about the release of koffice in an article about the release of koffice not relevant?

Edit: and just to reiterate so there is no confusion. I'm a fan of koffice and I'm a fan of what they're trying to accomplish. I've been running the dev releases for almost a year now and I hope that koffice will soon become good enough for me to use as my main office suite.

It's most certainly not stable and release ready.

From their own words:

Targeted Audience

Our goal for now is to release a first preview of what we have accomplished. This release is mainly aimed at developers, testers and early adopters. It is not aimed at end users, and we do not recommend Linux distributions to package it as the default office suite yet.
