The free and Open Source productivity suite

Read More

Free alternative for Office productivity tools: Apache OpenOffice - formerly known as OpenOffice.org - is an open-source office productivity software suite containing word processor, spreadsheet, presentation, graphics, formula editor, and database management applications. OpenOffice is available in many languages, works on all common computers, stores data in ODF - the international open standard format - and is able to read and write files in other formats, included the format used by the most common office suite packages. OpenOffice is also able to export files in PDF format. OpenOffice has supported extensions, in a similar manner to Mozilla Firefox, making easy to add new functionality to an existing OpenOffice installation.

Libre Office (The original creators of Open Office) are way better.

Unhappy with the install of Apache Oo 4.1.1 on a Windows 7. A system restore point immediately before the install was the only way to recover. The Apache install corrupted the file 'sdclt.exe' in system32 creating an "unspecified error'; and the following error occurred on signon from a restart: "User Profile Service service failed. User profile cannot be loaded." I don't care what the user interface looks like, I will not be rebooting this program anytime soon. Going back to Oo 3.3 thanks.

This is a solid alternative to M$ Office. It may not be a feature-rich, but it's FREE, and uses much less drive space, so it's a great effort that should be enough for most people's needs. Oh, LibreOffice is also a great alternative, but that's NO reason to bad mouth this release like it's garbage. The best feature it has is support for .docx format, which is my largest complaint about OpenOffice. If it supported .docx, I'd give it a solid 4 stars. As it is, I can only give it 3 stars (and a half, actually). The rest of this review is regarding the reviewers in here. MOST of the people writing two and one-star reviews are idiots. Examples: This is a 32-bit program; it SHOULD install into Program Files (x86), because that's where 32-bit programs go on 64-bit systems. Do you force square pegs in round holes? Also, it doesn't contain malware; those are morons clicking ad links on SourceForge because they don't understand the Internet. Norton Internet Security is junk. Uninstall that and get a real AV solution. Is your Mac whining about how it can't open OpenOffice because your security preferences won't allow it? That's YOUR issue, not OpenOffice's. Just right-click the icon, click Open, then confirm that you want to open it in the next dialog box, then it won't complain again. This is a FEATURE of Mac OS X. Also, the download page does say what operating system it supports. Running 32-bit version of OS X? Choose it in the drop down, it's not hard. Wah, wah, I want .deb, not .rpm, because my favorite distro is l33t. Why not compile it yourself from source, n00b?I love the herp-derp review wondering if this is a web server or office suite. I could go on and on, but seriously, just read the fools leaving negative, non-constructive reviews and you'll understand how dumb they are, and to not trust their "opinion".
