i have been using Koffice for my University papers, including Maths. I am able
to insert formulas into the paper in order to complete some pretty complex
homework problems, as well as inserting spreadsheets. I work with these
directly in the paper I am writing. I do find that after I have constructed a
paper that is nearly ten pages long with about thirty formula instances and
several spreadsheet instances performance issues become prevalent. I save the
file, quit Koffice and then open Koffice and the file again and I am able to
work again in a reasonable matter. Finally, I print the result directly to
PDF as my university only uses standards from proprietary commercial sources.

I don't use OpenOffice, takes too long to open, does not have a good formula
editor, is difficult for me to insert images, spreadsheets, database records,
etc. and is slow on my computer.

Koffice uses ODF as its default file, it was the first Office Suite to adopt
this format as default, so there is little to no problem in this regard.
