"KOffice comes with seven programs: KSpread, KPresenter, KDiagramm, KImage, KIllustrator, KFormula and KWord. Each program is very similar to Microsoft Office with one distinct difference, KOffice has more tools! KSpread is a spreadsheet very similar to Excel and Lotus 1-2-3, KPresenter is a presentation program similar to PowerPoint, KDiagramm is a program for drawing charts, KImage is a powerful image manipulation program, KIllustrator is a vector drawing program, KFormula is a formula drawing program, and KWord is the word processor.

"The most impressive feature of KOffice, as with any office suite, is the word processor KWord. To be completely honest, I felt like I was using Microsoft Word."

"This office suite is very impressive, easy to use and very well integrated. In fact, in the future, the KDE team plans to integrate the office suite into KDE 2.0."
