I have been using OO/LO since 1.9, but since LO 4.x was released, this is the best office suite ever! It's very stable now.
Brilliant software, have tried others, but this is better.
The best Office suite currently on Linux, in my opinion and it's free. That's really remarkable. Thank you so much Libre team! Btw. I noticed that it works better and faster in Linux than in Windows. Many multi-platform apps do and especially the ones that were Linux native before going MP.
Since the fork, I have been using Open Office and Libre Office concurrently to see which one is better for me. Now the difference between the two is becoming bigger, it's clear that Libre Office wins it for me as the interface is better, causing better productivity. The Libre Office team has clearly some focus on usability. What I miss in both is a Project Management application which would suit a productivity suit excellent. Both should also improve the drawing application as these are mediocre, drawing charts should be much quicker than it is now.
This is a great project, i have been using it on windows/linux for the past years and even installing them on my parents/friends desktops and they get along with it instantly.
