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.

I tried installing this software in "C:\Program Files\All Programs\Text\Open Office" but it installed in "C:\Program Files (x86)\All Programs\Text\Open Office" instead. It was doing this in version 3.x and still does in 4.x. A software must never ignore user preferences. In a software, if an as simple bug as this hasn't been solved in years, that software is nothing but a fail regardless of how shiny it appears to be!

I'm disappointed that when updating/ upgrading Apache OpenOffice from the version installed (in English) the download programming makes the gross assumption that because I live in France, I must therefore want it (the program in French. I do not - - luckily I am bilingual - but if not, what a nuisance! To have all the tools and help files etc in French would be intolerable. I had to install the previous versions twice to have both English and French versions, for use when I am in one or other country. As it is I shall be using this version only for simple documents. And my pdf conversions, -aid for for 2 years, will now have to be converted from Office in French, too. I shall toggle it and change the display language - but usually I keep both as I have a qwerty keyboard and use French spellcheck to apply accents etc. more shenanigans! I'll let you know how much difference the upgrade has made! Crystal Jane

OpenOffice has come a long way from the old StarOffice times. It is sad that it was forked, even with incompatible licences, because now each feature, each bug, even each regression needs to be looked into twice. My major gripe is the slow/nonexistent/regressed support for professional graphics: SVG, and mostly (E)PS. The so-called market leader, Microsoft Office, is completely blind on that eye. Therefore I had been very happy to do all my graphics, drawings, etc. in SVG, respectively EPS. Alas, with the transition to 4.X.X.X, both siblings lost in this field, with LibreOffice losing all, while OpenOffice still does SVG perfectly well. Alas, on both sides, the efforts to put support of proper vector graphics back, is on the back burner. Why? I have no clue. For me, that was one of the major advantages compared to MS Office.
