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.

Apparently you missed it.

Well no I've actually used all the betas, as I've been following the development of koffice for a long time. I had forgotten that they'd already had a release candidate, but my point still stands.

How does it still stand?

Your point was some weird murmuring about how they should have named a release candidate as a release candidate.

They did in fact do exactly that.

My point was that calling a product X.0 and then adding a footnote stating that it actually isn't ready for use does not in any way show that "they have learned from KDE4's mistake".

I still think they should have called this a release candidate, which is what it is.
