After switching to KDE recently, I am getting used to Koffice. It is nice, well integrated but it's perhaps weak in text fiilters/wrappers department. Am I missing something?
I don't need office suites extensively though.

I've stopped using OpenOffice Writer for the most part -- LaTeX all the way!

Still looking for a robust SpreadSheet application for mathematical/statistical work.

I can not vote in this poll because AGAIN the my preferred office suite is not listed. I would vote for SoftMaker Office because it is better than OpenOffice, but unfortunately AGAIN it is not listed. SoftMaker has making more improvements last year to be almost a direct alternative to Microsoft Office while OpenOffice has not. OpenOffice developers goal of being an Microsoft Office alternative is back firing in their face because of the developers being selfish. The following if you lost the URL that I posted last year.

SoftMaker Office

I usually use Google Docs. But OOo is my back up for when the internet connection dies.

I chose KOffice 1.6 or whatever the number is because it allows me to easily edit PDF files that people send me and what not.

While I vote for OpenOffice, I really dislike certain parts of it (Impress is not impressive. Calc has a few hiccups, but it's passable. Write isn't bad at all, but I really rely on a comment function in Word that works a particular way, and in Write, it doesn't work the same way. Feels bad, man)

I agree with you on KOffice, I'm waiting for it to be fully functional. I may switch from OO.org to Koffice.

Jermey:
Does Go-OO count as OpenOffice.org?

OOo has always been my most used application. It's saved me at work from having to find a copy of some ms office package. I just wish that sun would make something to compete with outlook for exchange connectivity.

I am in complete agreement that excluding SoftMaker Office makes this particular poll of little value.

<sigh>

Fantastic. How can I go back and change my vote? I didn't think that it would actually be included so I went with my second choice of OpenOffice.

It's a given that M$ Office is the key in the real world. If you can't at least talk to it (and M$ Office will integrate with Grandma's sink if you ask it to) then you are a no show in real "office" terms. It aint the best, but OO.o is the smoothest ride as a real work place alternative. I like where Koffice is heading..but again OO.o gets me this year.
