the OOo support for kde3 actuali its officialy droped, the work that all of u mention with kde3 its only throught GTK brigde..

as Ilya said, just software lines ... kde org moved to KDE4 and also all of other too.. basic..

You do realize that OOo is available for Windows and Mac too? It's not
just a Linux thing :-)

MS Office didn't support OpenDocument Format until it's 2007 version,
and I doubt it does it well -- Microsoft wants to create their own
open format in answer to ODF. They are basically XML files inside a
Zip file, just get a .docx file from someone using Office 2007 and run
unzip on the file. It will extract into a directory tree with some XML
files that contain the document and it's meta-data. From what I hear,
the XML files aren't very well formed.

I say stick with a real document format that will actually be
supported by people outside the world of Proprietary Software, and by
some who do make Proprietary Software. ODF FTW! ;-)
