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.

I can confirm with Gadget about the rendering issue. But for me it was with a doc created in office 2003. Didn't notice the problem till I printed a doc and I saw it came out strange in Libre. Even though If I open it up in office 2003 it looked fine.

Someone has to keep microsoft honest, if we didnt have the open document foundation, MS would release a new version of office every year with some incredibly minor change and force everyone to pay for the update or risk being 'backward incompatible'. Screw ms, they should be dead soon.

LibreOffice is fine if you keep office documents strictly in office 97-2003 (.doc/.xls/.ppt)format or open document format (.odt). If you exchange documents with an external company using office 2007 or higher, your docx/pptx/xlsx files may not render properly, or worse, objects will become missing or line objects will convert as shapes instead of line connectors. I have reported these bugs awhile back,as they are absolutely critical if you exchange office documents in 2007-2013 Office XML format.
For example, create a new impress document with 2 smiley face symbol drawings and connect line connector between them, and save it as .pptx. The line connector completely disappears. Now reopen the same document and resave as .ppt file, everything disappears.

Always thought this was pretty good. Now I up it to 5 star status. The few things it didn't do that MS Office did are now included in this version. UI also looks great. Runs fast. If you don't have an office software package on your pc, than this is a great free package to install.
