LibreOffice 5 – Free Office Suite Keeps Getting Better
LibreOffice and the Competition
LibreOffice works fine for most of your Office document needs from spreadsheets to documents. It is great that it is also absolutely free with no caveats or a catch. Get it and use it. But it is not perfect, especially if you are switching from Microsoft Office. Functionality wise, LibreOffice comes close unless you are an advanced user with some very specific needs. Previously, LibreOffice has had some formatting problems when having to import from or export to Microsoft Office applications but these are rare nowadays. It is best to work with its default format, which is the OpenDocument formats. If you have share documents, you can consider saving them as PDFs to prevent formatting changes and losses. There is also a version you can put on your drive and use on any PC without needing to install. But then, what would be awesome is an online version would be so welcome. Nonetheless, LibreOffice remains quite capable and this free software just keeps getting better. Grab it from here.
