At home I have Ubuntu on my desktop so there I use LibreOffice. On my netbook I have EasyPeasy so there I use OpenOffice. At work I chose to use LO basically by flipping a coin.

LibreOffice is developing relatively fast and updates are great. It is hard to predict what will happen with OpenOffice.org now, I would personally choose LibreOffice for the time being.

Microsoft made a smart move with Office Starter Edition, free as in free beer, I could imagine that only a minority will look for a more complex office suite, like LibreOffice, as Windows 7 replaces older Windows installations.

LibreOffice and OpenOffice must develop dramatically and deliver something just as good or else...

Hmm Quick to jump ship are thou
The only reason Microsoft give you something free is because Sun gave you a free Office system some 12 or so years ago when all you could get otherwise cost at least $800 and as much as $1800 with Microsofts Office Professional .

I will not be so quick to jump to Microsoft I'll tell you . I'll support to the end those brave souls that write software and distribute it for free

Let me tell you I have never paid for any software since 1976

Hi Kaaredyret,

This isn't downloadable it is only shipped with new PC's, hence not a good option.

Apache is working hard to get new versions out the door (no fixed dates) See:

The short answer is libreoffice. Openoffice was a java open source project When oracle bought sun the developers forked the openoffice project and created libreoffice. While oracle did not kill the open office project it has been stagnant and many now consider libreoffice to be it's replacement. There are a lot if development being spent on the libreoffice project and they are continuously updating and improving it..even coming out with mobile and online iterations soon.

Thanks in advance.
Donald

Amazing. I hadn't heard of this and it appears to be on my shiny new laptop. Not that I'm likely to use it but it might be handy to check formatting if I need to send Word docs..

You simply don't get the point. No matter why Microsoft made Office Starter Edition, LibreOffice and OpenOffice must give people good reason not to use it and to download and install their products.

People don't understand the file format or open source arguments, and they HAVE the Starter Edition. OpenOffice and LibreOffice must make their move now.

I don't care about your personal reason; lets observe the big picture instead, world trends.

This is going nowhere and it attracts too much spam. Locked.
