Apps actually don't have to be Open Source to be included in this category, but they do have to run natively on Linux.

Libre Office can't possibly be considered on this list as there is no 'stable' version yet.... But that's just my opinion and people will vote for it regardless of how many bugs it has. I'm guessing it's because it's not Oracle and it is now green.

I voted OpenOffice, but I prefer Koffice

OpenOffice has the best resources.
However, Koffice has not so less resources then OpenOffice and I like it more then any other Office, even then OpenOffice, and as I don't have need of a particular need, or to open a docx or a xlsx, I use Koffice.
It is a persona preference.

OOo... for some time now. Out of curiosity, may take a look at LibreOffice once it reaches the testing repository.

I seldom use Open Office for compatibility MS Word and Excel. Does its job but is a resource hog (for PIII 800 MHz). But on my second machine (Core something) it works smoothly.

I used to use Gnome Office but now have to use LATEX and GROFF becasue of my work.

As I have stated before, if you have installed it from the Debian repositories, it was Go-oo and not OOo.

Since this is for 2010 I voted OpenOffice. For 2011 my bet is on LibreOffice. I'm playing with it now and so far it's looking good.

I voted OpenOffice.org for ubiquity, but my preference is typesetting my documents with LaTeX.

I am definitely in favor of LibreOffice and the Document Foundation. Sun Microsystems started a wonderful project with OpenOffice.org. But OO now being under the umbrella of Oracle it is time for a change. Oracle IMO is no friend of FOSS.

Office

Yeah I still use OO but think some libreOffice or GnomeOffice might be good stuff though.

why some websites said openoffice must be uninstalled first before installing libreoffice?
can't both co-exist?
