Calligra Suite, the Promising Not-An-Office Suite
Once upon a time there was KOffice, all full of unrealized potential. And then it was forked as Calligra Suite. The first release of Calligra was on April 11, 2012. Is this a contender, or another niche productivity suite?
Calligra Suite is Not an Office Suite
Just like KDE4 is no longer a desktop environment but a Software Compilation, Calligra is not an office suite but "Calligra for the desktop." It has nine core applications for office, graphics and project management: Words (word processor), Stage (slide show), Sheets (spreadsheet), Flow (diagrams and flowcharts), Kexi (database), Krita (raster graphics), Karbon (vector graphics), and Plan (project management), and the new Braindump (notes and idea gathering).
