The KOffice suite is one of several Open Source Office application suites available for users of Linux and BSD operating systems. Although not as well known or as popular as OpenOffice.org, KOffice boasts practically the same features as OpenOffice.org. It is the de facto Office suite for the KDE desktop environment. The latest news form the KOffice team pertains to its new logo design.
The new logo design was sponsored by the NLnet Foundation, a Netherland-based foundation that “financially supports organizations and people that contribute to an open information society”. You will notice, if you have used KOffice suite, that the logos were, well, kinda boring. The new design is a lot more glitzy and pleasant to the eyes.
In addition to sponsoring the new KOffice logos, NLnet Foundation is also providing funding to improve ODF (Open Document Format) support in KOffice-2.0. Here’s a gallery of the new KOffice logos.
