Chapter�21.�Introduction to KOffice


The KDE project has also created a fully featured office suite called KOffice which adheres to standards and fits very well into the KDE desktop. This section was written with version 1.4 of KOffice in mind.

KOffice is a highly integrated office suite that builds directly on the KDE technology. This has many advantages in terms of integration, features, performance, familiar look and feel and so on. All technologies like DCOP, KIO, KParts are directly available.

In particular the KParts technology is extended for the KOffice components to allow very flexible embedding of documents inside documents.

Because much technology is already present inside KDE itself, KOffice is a very lightweight office suite, which results in fast application startup and low memory consumption. This makes KOffice a very suitable office suite for older hardware as well, which can save lots of costs in some cases.

KOffice is also a very feature complete office suite. It is not limited to word processing, spreadsheets or presentations, but has also components for image manipulation, flow charts, business report generation, database management and project management. Because of the flexible component integration smaller utilities like the diagram and chart engine as well as the formula editor are available as stand alone tools.

As you can see KOffice brings a lot of features that can enrich your office experience. Its straight forward and KDE like approach in look and feel as well as familiar usability makes KOffice quite useful for daily office work.
