Why pay for Microsoft Office when you can download all this for free. Download from http://www.OpenOffice.org This is the leading open-source office software suite for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more. It is available in many languages and works on all common computers. It stores all your data in an international open standard format and can also read and write files from other common office software packages. It can be downloaded and used completely free of charge for any purpose.

No it isn't. Please do not comment if you have no idea what you are talking about. OO 3.3 is a new release with a much larger spreadsheet than previous, now as large as MS. LibreOffice was set up by ex OpenOffice staff but sadly lacks even the capability of the old OpenOffice in that there are some MS formats it will not open.
OO 3.3 is excellent but bear in mind that OO docs can not be opened with MS Office.
Hope that clarifies things for anyone interested.

Same goes for you, if you're going to jump down someone's throat for trying to be helpful at least get your own facts straight.

By which I take it you mean both now support over 1million rows? As oppose to the previous 65,536, which was hardly a limit most users will ever get near now was it.

Not exactly, LibreOffice was set up by a significant number of members of the OpenOffice community, mostly volunteers, who didn't like the direction Oracle/Sun were taking it and it is largely based on the same codebase as OpenOffice. LibreOffice is also now supported by Canonical who are the guys behind Ubuntu.

LibreOffice reads and writes OOXML (docx etc.) just fine and supports older formats like .doc too.

Wrong, Office 2010 reads and writes OpenDocument Format (ODF) perfectly well and can even be set to use them as default.

ooooo, befuddled got served lol. Rightly so too, Libre Office is headed in the right direction, OpenOffice unfortunately isn't.

"sadly lacks even the capability of the old OpenOffice"

i thought it was a fork of openoffice, and therefore actually is the older openoffice but updated by different developers
#6
LibreOffice will replace OpenOffice as the default installed software on Ubuntu 11.04, so I'd say that will be the one to back in future.
It seems since taking over Oracle want to keep things in house which is against the spirit of the original Open Office creators.

you can if 'getting votes' is all you care about. i think you may have missed the point of this forum though....

Greedy Oracle took over benign Sun Microsysterns (OpenOffice) and is trying every trick in to book to "monetise" its acquisition by sueing everyone left, right and centre who had contributed to or used open source software. I'd advise anyone to stay a million miles away from anything related to Oracle. LibreOffice is definitely the best choice for office suite software IMHO.

Open Office was already free, it's been free since it was made.

That's if you think helping others isn't a custom of your own. Y'know, like this forum was intended for.
