LibreOffice is a productivity suite that is compatible with other major office suites, and available on a variety of platforms. It is free software and therefore free to download, use and distribute.
Reviewing 4.4.0 RC2 (Jan 23, 2015)
Nothing wrong with this software. For me it does what it needs to do, opens word, power point and excel files. I downloaded both this and Apache Open office. Basically the same thing. Even opened the same doc in both. Beside the UI it had the same functionality. Both work well. Saw some complaints about the spell check. Worked fine for me.
Reviewing 4.4.0 Beta 1 (Nov 26, 2014)
Everybody who's complaining has the chance to make it better, as it's open source. OOo is good, LO is better IMO. The changelog of LO 4.4.0 beta 1 (https://wiki.documentfou...rg/Releases/4.4.0/Beta1) shows 2476 (!!) fixes, which is obviously a lot, but at least LO is better and better with time.
Reviewing 4.3.0 Beta 2 (Jun 15, 2014)
How can LibreOffice take itself seriously? The dictionary, spell check, and their non-functioning grammar check are a joke: completely useless. With these important tools functioning at a 5th-grade level I have no choice but to move on. Apparently, writing isn't that important to these developers.
Reviewing 4.2.2 (Mar 14, 2014)
isylumn - I tried. With no results, openoffice is faster. I using openoffice till v3.2.1. OO 3.3.0 was very buggy, so I try to use libreoffice. But now I return OO, because it`s really faster with same functionality.
Reviewing 4.2.2 (Mar 13, 2014)
I like LibreOffice and have since its first inception. At first this office suite was something I played around with much like a beta tester seeing if I could break it or find a significant bug. There were some minor problems buit nothing of note.
Getting rid of Microsoft Office is something I've been toying with for years. It's much like thinking of getting rid of ones land line and going totally cellular. I know that I don't like the direction I see Microsoft Office going. With the reliability of LibreOffice unless Microsoft makes some magic it will be gathering dust in favor of LibreOffice.
excelent program indeed!
