LinuxPlanet: The Start X Files: Between the Sheets with KSpread

Jan 18, 2002, 21:54 (10 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Brian Proffitt)
"What struck me about this spreadshneet application was that I was not sure what audience it was being targeted for. With only a handful functions included and almost no data management tools, I cannot imagine this spreadsheet as being useful for anyone but the home user who just needs to pull some data together and maybe run a chart or two.

KSpread really belongs within KOffice, because the interoperability of it and the other KOffice applications is something that really makes this application better as a team player than a stand-alone spreadsheet. The ability to embed objects fairly indiscriminately between the KOffice applications is a real plus.

If the KSpread developers, who have done a good job coming this far, could work on the speed issue and then just load up KSpread with as many functions as they could squeeze into the toolkit, then I think KSpread would become a serious contender in the business environment."
