Thumbs up

OO 2.0 more features than the others, faster than 1.0.x and it uses KDE themes (if you use KDE).

I don't see Crossover Office, though I wouldn't use it anyway. I only really use the word processor in most suites, so I had to vote for GNOME Office because of Abiword.

OpenOffice, because it can do what MS Office can, but unlike MS, it's free!

KOffice's handling of PDF editing is every bit as bad as every other *nix PDF editor on the planet: it stinks. Unless your PDF is limited to paragraphs of text it does NOT work.

As an example: download, say, a Life Fitness elliptical brochure, or a Phillips DVD player brochure. Edit it - you'll find the format is TOTALLY screwed up now.

We really, badly need Acrobat Pro on Linux.

I have not used Star Office in a long time, but I have to say from what I remember OpenOffice.org is way better by leaps and bounds

Open Office, by far the best.

Koffice is KDE and that adds up to MEGABLOAT. And anything Gnome puts out is GIGABLOAT.

Open Office is awesome! it resembles a more popular office program that I used to use, and has all the features you could ever want!

Koffice

Koffice was the first out with an implementation of OpenDocument. As much as I like OOo2, KOffice got there first.

I agree with btl.
I read a lot about office suits, and I personally use OO 1.5, and I'm quite comfortable with it. I use also OO 1.9, but it's only Beta and all problems are to be forgiven. I never experienced new koffice, only the koffice than came with Mandrake 8.2. Maybe improved since than. I'll try it, maybe will work OK.

I liked Open Office, which is included in the Fedora Core distro, but I'll keep an eye on Koffice too.
