The full results from every MCA are still available. We keep the forum linked from the main forum index for roughly three months after the polls end, but the direct URL will always work.

LibreOffice. Horrible name to pronounce for us anglophones, but a great suite. It's a bit slower on my (admittedly now ancient) machine than I remember OOo 1.x-2.x being, but what can you do.

I thought OO and LO were the same thing besides OO being not supported anymore. No problems with either.

I think that Calligra has a good perspective not only as office suit, but also as instrument for design and make up of printing production. Though in now stage it is not perfected suit.

If all I need is a text editor or a very simple spreadsheet I prefer abiword and gunmeric. LO and OO are bloated.

The problem is that I need a full blown office suite. LO, and OO are not up to par. The equation editor is insufficient. the spreadsheet software has no where near the versatility of excel. Even if I was able to get all the functionality out of OO or LO that I wanted there is still the issue that the majority of business and academic worlds use MS Office and LO and OO do not reliably create documents which can be opened in MS Office without a problem.

Of course I hate windows and refuse to pay for software, so I'm stuck with LO until I can get MS Office working in wine.

Calligra for its integration with KDE, and I do not have to do documents in Microsoft formats.

Where is MS Office 2010?!!!!! Just kidding.
Seriously, none of the current Linux office suites can match MS Office in professional use so far. Even LibreOffice lacks lots of features. I wish it were the opposite. Since MS Office 2010 can run in wine, this suit hypothetically could be an option.

while I agree with you about the need for a better office suite, running MS Office in wine is a pain in the butt.

Calligra is getting REALLY close to being fully usable. However, it's not there yet. I tried to make the switch as I really would prefer Calligra (I DESPISE java), but 1/2 my files wouldn't work correctly. So LibreOffice it is, again.
