Using Abiword (not an office thing) and OpenOffice.org.
OpenOffice.org for making zines, mostly. I think I'll move to Scribus (not an office suite) for that when the zine I'm/we're working on is published, for next issue. Didn't try LibreOffice... Well, in fact I did, but not long enough to build an opinion! Though I voted LibreOffice by error :/

Official statement: "Going forward, the Go-oo project will be discontinued in favor of LibreOffice." So that's the end of that.

Two missing candidates: Calligra and Siag (I love the name Pathetic Writer!)

Yeah, StarOffice was good stuff, when it was what it was. Sun improved upon that with the transmutation into OpenOffice - a name I think most of us would like to use for LibreOffice but Larry Ellison hasn't turned over the name [yet].

OxygenOffice was a nice augmentation to OOo, which had relatively stalled and become stagnate even before EllisonCo bought Sun and killed it off (Say what you want but OOo is dead IMNSHO), but now LibreOffice is just the way to go - even if we often still make the mistake of referring to it as OpenOffice.

Yah, besides Koffice which has it's uses and supporters, my choice was LibreOffice.

LibreOffice

LibreOffice

LibreOffice

I hope that helps

Kindest regards,

LibreOffice. I like OpenOffice too and it works all the same but I'm not as big of an "Office" guy anymore.

LibreOffice, though lately it is quite slow, even on my quite powerful machine. I read about some jre issues, but I didn't solve my problem yet.

My use of 'Office Suites' pretty much boils down to something to read/edit documents created by lamers using M$ Orifice. OO.org is a dead end thanks to Scarey Larry and he had to give to ASF in last ditch effort to save face. Meanwhile, mega developer talent has defected to the new and truly free king, LibreOffice, which gets my vote.

I voted for Openoffice.org, because it worked well. However, I currently have Lyx which is the longest running Word Processor on Linux which works on multiple desktops, paired with Gnumeric. Perhaps a combo of Lyx, Gnumeric, and Gimp could be referred to as "Classic Office".
