Chapter 9. Productivity Applications > Office Suites for Fedora

Office Suites for Fedora

Most office suites include productivity applications, such as word processors, spreadsheet programs, calculators, database programs, and drawing tools. A number of office suites have been created for use with Linux. Many of them are free, but a number of commercial products are available as well. Many of these office suites contain applications that mimic the functionality of popular Windows-based productivity applications, and many are designed to be compatible with the file formats of those applications.

Fedora has not developed its own office suite, but it has provided a default set of office applications that are designed to have wide appeal and provide useful functionality. The main components, OpenOffice.org, and the GNOME Office suite are included on this book's CD-ROMs and DVD. In the following sections, you will learn about the applications included in these productivity packages and get some tips for installing and configuring them. You will also learn about the KDE office suite (KOffice) that is included, as well as other office suites that are available for free download or by purchase for use with Linux.
