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

    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".

    installs Haho Media , this is an adware program that infiltrate the computer by means of third-party program. This kind of software was made to generate revenue for its authors. Haho Media offers web enhancement function to visitors but what you may get are unwanted advertisements. Furthermore, adware such as this can put your privacy at risk and can lead to identity theft if not taken care right away.

    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.

    Tried to upgrade to 4.1.1 on my MacBookAir but was told in Swedish that: ”OpenOffice” kan inte öppnas eftersom det kommer från en oidentifierad utvecklare. i.e. OpenOffice cannot be opened because it is from an unidentified developer! I have been using OpenOffice 3 for years with no problem. What has happened? What to do?

    I have used Open Office on Windows based machines for years. After MS dropped support for XP, I decided to look at Linux. I installed Linux Mint 17 and love it. It came with Libre Office, which was a decent MS compatible office suite. After trying to copy and paste data into the spreadsheet and reading about other's problems with it, I decided to install Open Office. I uninstalled Libre, per the instructions. Installed Open Office. Being new to Linux, I DL the RPM files instead of the DEB files. After I got that straightened out, I got it up and running. To those that say Libre is better than Open Office, I don't think you have even given it a chance. Hands down Open Office is much better. One example is the icon bar. On Libre I had to mouse over each icon to see what it was. They were generic and looked the same. On Open Office they are in color and are easy to see. I copy and pasted into the spreadsheet with no problems. In Libre my system was rebooting after trying it. Hands down, Open Office is THE BEST free MS compatible office software. I share it on Facebook and have converted many friends to it. Install it, you won't be disappointed.

    This is THE BEST Office Application (incl. RTF Word processor, Presentation maker etc.) that one can get FREE. It has all basic functionality and features which are required for day-to-day usage. Whatelse one can get for free (and legally too)?

    I am very grateful for Open Office. Since my first Microsoft Word, that came installed on my first computer, expired, I have never had to pay Microsoft another penny to have a great word processing program. I have never tried out the other software in the Open Office suite. But I like the word processing very much. Even though it does seem to crash a lot, since I am just a home user it doesn't matter-- plus they ALWAYS recover the work I am doing, and get back to normal within seconds. I'm just glad this exists. Maybe I should give them a donation.....

    What did you think of Apache OpenOffice? I don’t know what to say because the program was never in my computer. Norton Internet Security deleted after the downloading was finished. And the report said that there was a threat eith the name: WS.Reputation.1. The same happened with the langpack.
