KDE

LibreOffice? Pfft. OpenOffice? Blah. KOffice? Dead for a while now. Calligra Suite? Now we’re talking!

Calligra Suite

You may be a bit confused as to what Calligra Suite is, in fact you may not have ever even heard of it before now.

It consists of the following applications:

Words (word processor)
Sheets (spreadsheet)
Stage (presentation)
Kexi (visual database)
Plan (project management)
Braindump (notetaking and mindmapping)
Flow (flowchart)
Karbon (vector graphics editor)
Krita (digital painting and image editing)
Author (e-book authoring)
