KDE "The KDE community today announces the start of the Calligra Suite project, a continuation of the KOffice project. The new name reflects the wider value of the KOffice technology platform beyond just desktop office applications. With a new name for the Suite and new names for the productivity applications, the Calligra community welcomes a new stage in the development of free productivity and creativity applications for desktop and mobile devices."

So, they renamed many applications - at least the "base" KOffice applications. And the word processor application is called .... wait for it .... Words. Really? Words?? That is a trademark infringement lawsuit waiting to happen. And before y'all come shouting about the inability to trademark protect generic ... words (pun intended) - remember how Microsoft shoved it to Lindows...err...Linspi...err...Freespi...err...whatsitsname.


It might be a problem if "Word" and "Words" were the actual names of the products.

The actual product names are "Calligra Words" and "Microsoft Word" respectively. There should be no confusion between these names.
