Koffice is getting better and better, but it'll take them to 2.0 (end of year, hopefully waiting) to beat OO, i think

it will be a LOT longer than that. koffice is rubbish without a doubt. the central apps in koffice are kspread and kword. linux format reviewed kspread, OO calc, and some others last month. while OO took top honours, kspread scored 1/10. this is what the reviews had to say about kspread:
Quote:
KSpread
"Surprisingly, the core components (KWord and KSpread) are amongst the least developed members of the suite and are, in many cases, frustratingly unusable

........

A disaster area that needs some serious work to even be considered"
Rating 1/10
(LXF76 pp 35)

OO calc got 9/10 and gnumeric got 7/10.


i voted for OO because, despite its bloat and slow loading, it is by far the best and most complete office suite on linux.

weird, as many other revieuws DID indeed say Koffice was behind OO on many, but not all features. i'd rather give it a 5/10 and oo 8/10. anyway, noone can deny koffice has been improving faster than OO, lately, esp krita. and they did it with far less ppl and no big corporate money, which earns them a first place, imho.

kwrite didn't fare much better either in a past review - i think it was given either 1 or 2 out of 10. you can check out the review of it in linux format issue 76 (feb 2006) on p 35. those comments that i've included were perhaps the most complementary of koffice throughout the review. the reviewers were saying that kspread is totally useless and doesn't work at all.
koffice has millions of years to go before it even comes within a sniff of OO.

Oh, sorry, I had no idea that "Linux Format" gave KSpread a 1/10. To think that for all this time I was so in the dark. I'm uninstalling KOffice as we speak and proclaiming the undisputed superiority of OO.org. Thanks for enlightening me.

the last line is really an overstatement of OO's superiority over Koffice in generall - OO's development isn't that fast, while Koffice with way less developers is going very fast (tough it is held back by Qt3/KDE3 - as soon as Qt4/KDE4 can be used as foundation for Koffice2, you'll be amazed by the progress they'll make).

and i think linux format is quite anti-Koffice, then - so i don't take them very serious. 2/10 and openoffice 9/10? come on, that's ridiculous. if that's the case, what would MS Office score? 20/10 i guess?

if you ever start to read linux format regularly, you will realise that the magazine is actually VERY pro-KDE. makes you wonder what scores koffice and its components would have got if it wasn't.
