Editor's Review

LibreOffice is a word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation software that includes drawing, flowcharting, database and math editor applications. LibreOffice is a well-known fork of Apache OpenOffice and is accessible to anyone who has used Microsoft Office. Like Apache OpenOffice, LibreOffice uses the modern open standard, OpenDocument Format (ODF), lets you can save documents in popular formats, and gives you a free, cross-platform alternative for Windows, OS X, and Linux. Compare LibreOffice to Google Docs, which lets you work in the cloud and offers low-key features compared to Microsoft. LibreOffice gives you a free, cross-platform alternative for Windows, OS X, and Linux. And here’s something that few people know, LibreOffice opens old antiquated files from programs like Microsoft Works, Microsoft Publisher, and WordPerfect. All in all, LibreOffice has all the features you need for work in the real world!

    @ganerd You couldn't be further from the truth if you had tried. FACT: OpenOffice was first. The project went from openoffice.org to Sun Microsystems who sold OO to Oracle who donated the code to Apache. FACT: The top tier of developers left OO in 2010 to form The Document Foundation (developers of LibreOffice). FACT: LibreOffice was first released in 2011. FACT: LibreOffice has a quicker release cycle for minor bug fixes. FACT: LibreOffice cleaned out 7,000,000 line of un-needed code. FACT: LibreOffice is offered in more languages worldwide than OO. FACT: LibreOffice downloads are increasing while OpenOffice downloads are decreasing. FACT: LO has more people (almost ten times more) contributing to its code than OO . FACT: Virtually every expert who has written a review gives the edge to LO. FACT: LO is more flexible than OO and can work with more formats than OO. FACT: OpenOffice is known to crash more often than LibreOffice. I have yet to see LO crash at all even when working with large projects. Last FACT: LibreOffice will continue to grow while OpenOffice will wallow in mediocrity. As for me give me LibreOffice anytime, anywhere. LibreOffice has been proven to be a rock solid office suite whether it's open source or otherwise. Many reviewers have gone so far as to say that in some respects LibreOffice outperforms even Microsoft Office.

    REALLY wish it allowed LESS THAN ONE STAR :( One idiot commented, :Libre Office (The original creators of Open Office) are way better than Open office.” HARDLY! Libre Office was first, but just went dead in the water. Like evolution OO just keeps getting better. I recently tried to use Libre Office again, because good CIS guys, like myself want the best and most workable. I could never come close in making it what I had with OO. . Also, OO has become far more accepted than Libre with OO having close to 100 million total downloads, with each version getting almost 1 million each. The higher worldwide usage automatically triggers more enhancements. OO has ALMOST 8 TIMES the languages, current provider, Apache, provides better support in its history including when it was Libre, has far more file formats including conversion of 3D graphics to flash and crashes far more often, . With MS being the target of every hacker and virus I SHUN ANY MS PRODUCT from the Explorer, to Office.

    It’s super stable, opens more formats, contains many more features than AOO (compare Calc, Impress and Math), the developers respond quickly to bug reports, the translations are way better as well. There’s nothing to dislike!
