Office Applications and Editors
Several office suites are now available for Fedora (see Table 5-1). These include professional-level word processors, presentation managers, drawing tools, and spreadsheets. The freely available versions are described in this chapter. LibreOffice is currently the primary office suite supported by Fedora. Calligra is an office suite designed for use with KDE. The GNOME Office suite integrates GNOME applications into a productivity suite. CodeWeavers CrossOver Office provides reliable support for running Microsoft Office Windows applications directly on Linux, integrating them with KDE and GNOME. You can also download the Apache OpenOffice suite (originally, Oracle/StarOffice). For desktop publishing, especially PDF generation, you can use Scribus, a cross-platform tool available from the Fedora repository.
