GNOME Office

Redirected from Gnome office

The GNOME Office is an Office applications suite:

GNOME Office is intended to be a competitor to the Microsoft Office suite. The KOffice suite was developed earlier, but was not at first free software according to the strict interpretation of the Free Software Foundation, so the GNOME desktop was created as a free alternative. Most observers, whether they prefer KDE, GNOME, or another platform, believe that the competition between the two projects has resulted in both projects becoming better.

Neither suite is at this time competitive with the Microsoft products in user base, although the feature set of both projects is getting closer to that goal.

There also exists an office suite called OpenOffice.org which is the free software base used to create StarOffice. Sun Microsystems is integrating OpenOffice.org with GNOME, and intend the applications of OpenOffice.org to become part of GNOME office.
