OK you might need to ask Kylie that one

I believe that because I had used Microsoft Office Pro

in various workplaces or volunteering from 3.1 to 95 to 98 ME and XP 
that OOo is closer to that than KOffice

and i thought and it is better if Kylie explains it
that I was to get the benifit of that and be able to use files saved 
under MS to view then better

I have also been recommended to get StarOffice but can not afford that 
at the moment
In fact OpenOffice.org (OOo) did read our Resumes better and I like 
impress better
I no longer have KOffice on my system I couldn't see the point of having 
I did prefer KOffice spreadsheet it was a bit easier

In the end I chose to stick with OOo
I do think its a bit easier than KOffice
but I guess thats a preference and it does carry more formatting and
if you send an attachment to someone who has MS then I just feel it
is easier for then to read

Hope this answers your Question Shaun
and hope Chris is doing better
