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.

It is possible to install apps for Linux without internet connection. You just might need to download a few packages instead of just one. It is still very much possible as usually the websites also provide links to any dependencies you might need.


I'm not talking about Linux here, I'm talking about Windows, where the default method for handling application installation (like it or hate it) is via individual application installers, which install the application plus all related dependencies as one package. The Linux way works well on Linux and should not change, the Windows way works...well..ahem... on that system and I think applications should conform to the standards of the OS they are installed in.
