blogs.eweek: For the past six years or so, I've watched the suite progress slowly but steadily toward the goal of being "just as good" as Microsoft Office. For my needs, OpenOffice.org has been better than good enough. Given the rise of these Web-based alternatives it's worth asking whether OpenOffice.org will continue to matter as we move forward.
kde.org: Today on IRC a user asked the following question: "Is there a list of 1.4 features that are still missing in Amarok 2?" As this question comes up rather frequently, I will try to shed some light on this topic here.
