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."

I hope all the Kname haters are happy with a new name for the office suite that does nothing to betray that it is in fact an office suite. At least the individual app name changes are an improvement


Two points to note:

1. "Calligra" is a contraction of "calligraphy".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calligraphy

IOW, fancy writing.

2. I note with interest that self-styled "kname haters" never seem to mind iNames, ganmes or winnames.
