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.

exactly. I think thom missed the point of the whole kde4 naming debacle when it happened the distance between kde or koffice versions is measured in months. everyone else calls the test versions of the software "BETA", ever hear of it?


KOffice 2 went through about six beta and release candidate versions.

What is there is tested. The thing that makes KOffice 2 not suitable for most end users is a lack of features implemented yet, it is not a lack of testing.

PS: Correction. Seven beta versions:

... and AFAIK one release candidate:

http://www.kubuntu.org/news/koffice-2-rc

It's most certainly not stable and release ready.


Au contraire, I'd say it was very likely to be better characterised as stable but not yet feature complete.
