Open Office is all I need. And it appears by the voting, at the time I post this, that others agree also.

Openoffice all the way. Should koffice really be put in the catagories? There is no comparison to OpenOffice.

one short notice: the official name is OpenOffice.org due to some copyright issues!

Star Office. Bought that for Windows, but can use it in Linux. I like it. I founf that Open Office opens my spreadsheets a lot slower than Star Office, don't know why that should be.

I use OpenOffice.org with both Windows and GNU/Linux, but sometimes I just prefer Gnome Office - it is much faster and has sufficient features most of the time

Open Office is really a good one but has not a good support on unicode, which koffice has.

openoffice.org...
pdf export, opens nearly every MSOffice/WordPerfect/etc. document happily. If only it did Koffice imports, and access DB manipulation. oh well, can't get everything. Oh yeah and it's cross-platform and FREE too!

openoffice.org is only open source since a few weeks, so my vote goes to openoffice.org now. otherwise Gnu Emacs would be the winner of course.

Open Office

OpenOffice.org

Solid, very good and advanced features. Hopefully will evolve a lot more. Sometimes I have some importing problems and it crashes.
