Projects / KOffice


KOffice is an integrated office suite based on the KDE libraries. KOffice currently includes KWord, KSpread, KPresenter, KChart, Karbon14, Krita, Kexi, KFormula, Kugar, and Kivio. There are no special mail and news clients included in KOffice, because there are KMail and KNode available for KDE anyway. All KOffice components work together, and you can embed every KOffice component into any other KOffice component. This is realized using the KParts object model.

            I don't feel anything funny about it. Though their package is not that good as openoffice

            very buggy
            I used to use kword 1.2.1, but it was very buggy: crashed constantly, printed debugging output to the console, produced bad PDF output. AbiWord seems much better than kword. Kspread 1.2.1 crashed within the first five minutes I used it.

            That project description almost reads like a satire article making fun of the KDE application naming scheme. :)
