I have been using OpenOffice for a long time, both on windows and on 
Linux SuSE with Khmer Interface.
By default, on windows we need to configure to use OpenOffice dialogues 
manually, but on Linux SuSE
I cannot find OpenOffice.org->General->Open/Save
dialogues and disable "Use OpenOffice.org dialogues". And It is using OpenOffice dialog by default.

I would prefer OpenOffice than Koffice, because KhmerOS have already developed OpenOffice into Khmer , and we don't want to spend
more time on localizing the same-purposed software. Please visit www.khmeros.info for more details.

I have experience in using OpenOffice, It is working very fine with Khmer Unicode, except some font.
