Kent Nguyen guides us through the major features of KWord.

"For five years, the only office suite I knew and used was Microsoft Office. Logically, an upgrade to Office XP should be my next step. Yet, after reading about Microsoft's increased invasion of privacy with XP (Microsoft to me: We're turning off your Office), it became my quest to find an alternative office suite."

"I stumbled across KOffice when a Linux guru friend suggested it to me. Personally, I wouldn't want to switch applications, let alone an operating system, just to use an office suite. Yet now I was stuck between upgrading to Office XP or making the bold move to install Linux and Koffice 1.1 Beta 3. I thought, "why not?" since Linux will always be free, no one person has control over it, and I won't be harassed five years later. And so my quest began."
