Open Source Office Suites Are Few, But Filled with Applications

,----[ Quote ]
| Appearances to the contrary, OpenOffice.org and its various 
| offshoots aren't the only choices available to you in terms 
| of full-scale, cross-platform open source office suites. 
| Although alternatives in this space are few, the KDE 
| Project's KOffice is now coming on quite strong, while GNOME 
| Office and Siag Office keep attracting fans, too.



Openoffice.org - Five things MS Office users do not know.

| High Quality Office Suite.
| OO.org is developed by a worldwide community of people like you and I. You
| can contribute to the development of this great application in so many ways
| the easiest of which is to donate some few dollars to help cover the cost of
| development. Having thousands of people develop the application has resulted
| in a very high quality product due to the fact that lots of people get to see
| the code,  make corrections and give valuable inputs, with more people
| testing it and giving feedback resulting in a very stable, reliable, high
| quality world class product. There is no secret in the development of OO.org

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
