Much as I'd love to have an alternative to the behemoth OpenOffice/LibreOffice and much as Calligra looks promising in that domain (and in a sense closer to iWork 09), it just wasn't there yet when I last had a serious look a couple of months back. And that's not even mentioning the fact that the lack of support for drag and drop operations on OS X (other than among KDE apps) will be a real disadvantage.

Just for the record, according to plans, we think about Kexi on Mac as

interesting year brings.
