Features, Office "A group of key OpenOffice.org contributors and community members recently decided to fork the project and establish The Document Foundation in order to drive forward community-driven development of the open source office suite. Oracle has responded to the move by asking several members of TDF to step down from their positions as representatives on the OOo community council."

The Document Foundation should dump the mess that is OpenOffice, and put some resources into koffice.


No thanks.

It's not hard to believe that koffice is still not stable or complete.

You might not like it but given the resources and LOC pumped into OpenOffice and you look at where it is versus KOffice, the question has to be asked.

The frameworks like UNO that have been shoehorned into OpenOffice to try and make it cross-platform are absolutely jaw dropping. I still maintain that using a cross-platform toolkit like Qt is a far better option than chucking cross-platform frameworks into your application as you come across them.

OpenOffice isn't even functionally comparable to KOffice either because KOffice has applications like Kexi, Kivio, KPlato and Krita.
