I tested the prerrelease openoffice version and it looks really promising. All the other options are less visible and less massive projects.

I think Yong Zhong Office's compatibility is better than other opensource competitors.

I gotta go with Koffice, as it's come a long way. Its notquite there with .doc support, but soon...

I do like OpenOffice as well, and Abiword is an awesome word processor, but for its size (about1/6 of OoO) and speed, its hard to beat Koffice for features and function. They ALL kick butt!

Uh---so what about the java dependancy? That doesn't make it non-free.

hmm....this is kinda hard for me, see i just LOVE OOo's features...but at the same time, i cant resis Koffice's speed!

At the end of the day, i guess OOo would win, sorry KDE-maybe next time!

There is another and crucial raison for using
OpenOffice and not the gentle Abiword:
The support of Arabic Langage!
