Overview

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 love Apache OpenOffice. I just downloaded 4.0 and it looks pretty good. I am not a big fan of the big sidebar stuff, but once you close it, it seems to stay closed. It looks like it may be useful to those who use such things though. I had thought that this version would allowing saving in the docx and other newer M.S. file types, but ti doesn't. That doesn't matter to me either as I save my stuff in .doc. I figure that anyone can open a doc file so I am not worried about the newer types. What would I like to see in a future update? I don't know if it would be a simple or not, but I would like to be able to customize my tool bars by just dragging icons to the bar itself (the way M.S. Office and Softmaker Office allow one to do). I tried LibreOffice and to me it seemed bloated. It also wasn't as fast as A.O.O. What do I like BEST about A.O.O.? You have kept the menus and tool bars looking the same. It doesn't look like one big tool bar at eh top of the screen. There is a distinction between bars. Unlike L.O. tool bars that seem all run together. And we SURELY do not need that ridiculous ribbon interface that M.S. has adopted. The tool bar is a simple thing, but it is what keeps this Office Suite top of the rest. We don't need super fancy stuff. What we DO need is what works and looks pleasing to the eye. A.O.O. has managed to do that. Thanks Guys. :)

I love Apache Open Office!! In the earliest days of development in the 2000's ( I think under Sun Micro?) it was a little unstable but over the years these later versions are fantastic. I can do everything I need to. I have sincere appreciation for everyone that has to contributed to the development of this application. Thank you for making it such a great program and especially in keeping it accessible to all.

Best office ever.. I thought it would have been missing some features since I was accustomed to MS Word ..the truth is, I am enjoying Apache and not missing MSword.

"...people who have anything to fear from free software are those whose products are worth even less" (David Emery). Open Office remembered me once and once more this sentence: the fact to be a free suite is just another exponent more of its excelence, and think its presence and constant improvement in the market has kept the non-free products with a much better price/performance ratio. For all of that reasons, thank you, Sourceforge, thank you Open Office; in the name of the free and not free software consumers.
