Personally I love Wordperfect for Linux (not sur if a licence is still
required but I applied for one when it was free), freely downloadable
from www.download.com or wherever. I have used abiword, I like it but
prefer Wordperfect. I recently have used the suite of KDE office apps,
and looks very promising. Apparantly Staroffice 6 (beta) is deadly. No
experience with it - yet - I don't use beta software.
Some other office applications that deserve a mention:
- Abiword is a nice small word processor that I quite like.
- Gnumeric is a decent spreadsheet application.
- The GIMP is a very good and well regarded graphics program.
Comparable more to Photoshop than MS Paint in terms of ability.
- Open Office is an open source variant of Star Office.
- Dia is a Visio like application for drawing technical diagrams.
GIMP, OpenOffice and Abiword are all available for windows platform also
which may be of interest to some people.
