You people miss the point: there is no other office suite in the world which
is so closely integrated with KDE3 as KOffice. For instance, it provides KParts
which are used in say, Konqueror, that's why you can open a text document
in Konqueror like a web page. You can imbed web pages in your documents
as well. 

There is no such thing in Libre/Open Office. There was a project named Cuckooo, 
but it does not build now
