The apps of KDE 4.10 Part VI: Calligra Suite

Filed under
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. Essentially Calligra Suite is a fork of the KOffice project from back in 2010 and has now become the de facto group of KDE publishing/office applications, as KOffice isn’t really being developed any more. 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)

For the purposes of this post I’m going to be going over the first three which I think are the most commonly used day-to-day applications.
