The other big Linux office suites

Filed under

If you're new to Linux, you may be excused for thinking that there are only two note-worthy Linux office suites: and its commercial brother, StarOffice. Nothing could be further from the truth. By my count, there are three other significant Linux office suites.

The first of these is VistaSource Inc.'s ApplixWare 6.0. At one time, this was a well-known Linux office suite, but the company began to focus more on using ApplixWare as an application development system for real-time programs.

The other two prominent office suites? KOffice, for KDE, and GNOME Office, for, you guessed it, GNOME.

Full Story.

First let's talk about why regulation usually works, then, why it won't work for security.
