My guess is that Koffice actually has a working codebase, while the only
working component of gnome-office is gnumeric ( incidently, gnumeric 
looks quite good, but still beta quality ). It's easy to add thousands
of lines of code when you don't have anything yet ! OTOH, if you have a
working code base, there may or may not be compelling reason to increase
the number of lines of code.

BTW, I am running Krash at the moment, ( I installed it to play with
the new APIs ) and I must say I am quite impressed. There are small bugs
here and there but it is basically usable. The themeing is nice, and I'm
impressed with Koffice ( I'm going to have to add a section on kword to
my font HOWTO now ... ) 

I'd say KDE 2.0 is one of the main things ( re Linux ) to get excited
about in 2000.
