kryptonite) is unwise.


That is not an issue provided that they are open to integration patches, IMHO. One always has the chance to fork that suite, integrate the patches and supply ir to whoever wants that.
 
I do use koffice, its has a lot of advantages OOo and its off shoots
don't. Too many to go into but avid users know.


I personally never was able to use KOffice 3.5. It didn't open any files, the interface was a mess, it simply didn't work ok. The only app I ever used regularly was Krita - which was quite good - though I mostly replaced it with GIMP nowadays, even though I can install Krita with no problems.

I would very much like to hear what is so great about KOffice 3, as LibreOffice is not perfect but I haven't truly found anything better. Otherwise, my personal opinion on the matter is very much like of all others. What we would gain with integration and consistent user interfaces doesn't make up for the lack of features and file support under KOffice.

Its something that needs to be considered patiently. Hast makes waste
and all that rot.


Thanks for listen (or reading rather)
