Features, Office The Calligra Office Suite has announced its second snapshot release. The project, which is a fork of KOffice, is building a suite of productivity and creativity applications and is working towards its first formal end-user release due in October. The project is seeking feedback from end users particularly in the area of usability of the GUI. With this snapshot Calligra Office Words is claiming better compatibility with .docx than LibreOffice, and also claims to be approaching the best compatibility with legacy .doc formats.

My experience re MS Word under Wine was the same as parent's.


Yet my experience is that LibreOffice is significantly faster than OpenOffice and a little faster than MS Office under Wine.

"LibreOffice 3.3: Fast, fun and functional"

"One of the things that can't be seen in a list, that's been included in the reports of nearly all the reviewers, and that must be experienced, are the speed enhancements. Without a doubt, LibreOffice 3.3.0 launches much faster than previous versions of OpenOffice. LibreOffice 3.3.0 also feels much more responsive, with perceptible speed enhancements across all the applications in the office suite."


People needn't take my word for this, I have backup.

Funny how you cite two articles as your "backup" none of which even mentions Wine and yet say people needn't take your word for this. Well, I happily take your word that LibreOffice is faster than MS Office under Wine for you. But it's a bit ridiculous trying to accuse other people of lying on that ground.

My evidence is one-thousand-fold better than anything you, or anyone else, has provided to support other contentions that have been made.

Actually, come to think about it, my evidence is far more than a thousand times better, it is infinitely better. After all, any evidence, divided by zero evidence, yields a ratio of of infinity, in favour of my claims, for evidence provided.
