          I feel like its very wasteful on screen space, puts options in the wrong area from where they should be (why split them top and right? It takes more mouse time to get from one option to another if one is up top and one is on the right.) I sat down and tried to use it for about a month and I just couldn't do it.

            Eh... thing is other than the new/open/save buttons I'm not sure what you're wanting to be messing around with on a regular basis that is in the top bar, and the new and open buttons will be only once or a few times per session and while I can see hitting the save button a lot... if you're really wanting to do that all the time Ctrl-S is faster and doesn't interrupt the flow of using the keyboard by having to go over to the mouse, and having stuff on the right is better for if you have a widescreen monitor and thus all that can take up horizontal space rather than the oft complained about vertical space. Also the tool area on the right was redesigned with 2.7 so you might check it out and see what you feel about that.

              I tried using Calligra 2.5, but it's really quite unfinished. Math formulas don't work, imported documents are displayed improperly, there are few features... Maybe they solved some of those problems in 2.6 and 2.7, but so far I'm still using LibreOffice.
