   I like the concept of koffice, but it has never been usable in the 2.0.x 
version. My entire business is built around word-processing from a document 
standpoint, and the only viable packages have been Office on the Win side and OO 
on the Linux side. Koffice was a great concept, but I don't think it has ever 
quite "made it" from a usability standpoint. WP for Linux was around several 
years ago, but I think that was completely abandoned.

   I say -- stick with what works (thus Trinity :)
