I use xpdf, found it much better than kpdf but that was some years ago when I used KDE in Slackware Linux.

I see there are other open-source pdf viewers.

System Rescue CD uses epdfview.

I didn't like kWrite or kspread (spreadsheet that came with KDE).

Abiword is much better than kWrite, and gnumeric is much better than the spreadsheet that came with KDE.

I am not familiar with the other KDE apps.
