Cleanup[edit]

In the Proprietary suites section i noticed that three of the suites do not have an independant article in wikipedia and i propose for removal of the same.Kalivd (talk) 14:27, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Yep. Go for it. -- Swerdnaneb 17:16, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
I have finished the removal of those three proprietary suitesKalivd (talk) 14:57, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Also I have noticed that there are too many tables in the article page, can any editor with thorough knowledge about this article improve and cut the tables short because the article itself is very long which might mislead the viewer or the person reading.

Recent revert[edit]

This edit made the article internally inconsistent, using the terms "Linux" and "GNU/Linux" interchangeably. This is confusing; we should use one or the other. It should be reverted. Chris Cunningham (not at work) - talk 18:02, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

KOffice availablility for Windows and Mac OSX[edit]

I just reverted an edit that said KOffice relied on something called 'K emulator' under Windows and so was not native. This is patently not true; KEmulator does exist but it seems to be to do with games from portable devices and certainly nothing to do with KOffice. It may be true that KOffice requires KDE to be installed first, but that is a set of libraries, not an emulator. I can't find any confirmation of this, though.

I just wrote about this on the KOffice talk page. I suggest we try to get both articles to be up-to-date, true, referenced and consistent in this area as soon as we find out if I'm just missing something here. --Nigelj (talk) 20:03, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

Google Store and Citation Request for Microsoft binary file format being supplanted[edit]

Not sure how smoothly this ties in, but in the article's second paragraph, a citation was requested to show attempt(s) to replace MS' productivity suite file format. Google plans to offer a Google Store in March 2010, open to third party app and API developers, which would allow people to store Google docs. This would have the effect of supplanting productivity suites in general and Microsoft Office specifically.

Indicated Celframe Office features misleading[edit]

The table lists numerous impressive, exceptional features. But read the fine print for footnote 14:

  • Not included in this office suite, but provided in the Desktop Environment.

This is rather significant. Perhaps the color tone on the chart should be adjusted. Otherwise, I feel mislead. I found no reference for project management software for Celframe in the Internet, yet the chart in this wikipedia article makes a reference to it. Very misleading. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dogru144 (talkcontribs) 05:24, 12 July 2010

This stuff was removed. Celframe doesn't have any article any more. mabdul 05:44, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Online office suite: Windows Live Office[edit]

I added Windows Live Office to the Online office suites section. I hope someone can add the Live Office to the comparison tables below. Thanks. --130.83.20.73 (talk) 14:49, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

top 5 comparison[edit]

I'm sorry to all those who want as much information as they possibly can get but these lists overwhelm me.

I would much prefer to just compare the top 3-5 ish so I can actually compare them instead of having to jump around the list hunting a pecking for the right information.

After all how much of the market does the top 3-5 ish have?

Also I don't know if I have to sign this so I will anyway.tumaru 18:49, 29 April 2011 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tumaru (talkcontribs)
