That is good news! Thanks. It solves more than half of the problem. (The other and smaller half being GPL vs LGPL, which is both very understandable and not an issue for OSS.)
I don't claim that Windows has anything to do with maturity, just that a project is much more interesting to spend resources on, when the potential user base is more than 100 times bigger. With Office software it's even more true, because the usual path is MS Office + Windows -> Open Source solution + Windows -> Open Source solution + Open Source Operating System. KOffice simply didn't have a shot at these MS Office migrations until now.
