LibreOffice uses the international ISO/IEC standard OpenDocument file format as its native format to save documents for all of its applications (as do its OpenOffice.org cousins Apache OpenOffice and NeoOffice). The OpenDocument file format is now also supported by all major competing office suite applications (proprietary and open source). LibreOffice is also compatible with other major office suites, including Microsoft Office, through a variety of import/export filters. The file formats of Microsoft Office are well supported, though some layout features and formatting attributes are handled differently in the application or are not entirely supported in the filters. LibreOffice is available in over 110 languages and for a variety of computing platforms, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or newer, and Linux

I hear u both! .. but in Todays overtly 'I.T. Enlightened World' .. if u still not know of at the very least 1 or 2 of the many 'Free Alternatives' (to almost pretty much everything?), then there's kinda a major problem in itself right there dont u think .....

Free Office Packages like Open Office, Libre Office, Apachie Office as opposed to Microsofts' own .. Free Operating Systems as opposed to Microsofts' own .. Free Anti-Virus's like AVG, Antivir, Commodo as opposed to Nortons own .. Free Partition Manager Utilities like F-Part as opposes to Nortons/PowerQuests own .. Free Firewalls' like Zone Alarm as opposed to McAfees' .. Free Graphic/Picture manipulation Softwarevlike GIMP, & Googles equivalent as opposed to Adobes &/or Corels own, etc, etc, etc ..... (you get the 'Picture' ..... ) lol. :-)

....

Not really, the 'I.T. Enlightened World' doesn't exist, only in advertisers minds maybe but there are plenty of people who don't know about these 'freebies' and there are plenty of people who don't care for anything IT, free or not and they live very happy lives without it, it's only the media who make you think you need it when in the real world....you don't.

Ironically I thought exactly the same thang AFTER I sent my original Message out too (funnily enough?), & I agree with you too ..... the 'POWER' we in the World (as a whole) give to the Media/Marketting/Advertising Industries is **** interesting (if not annoying!), huh .....

Makes you kinda think, no?.

Verrrryyyyyyyyyyyy good! .. and so is Open Solaris, PC-BSD, Android, BeOS, FreeDOS, ReactOS, NetBSD, GeeXboX, OpenELEC 4.0.0 (32-bit), OpenELEC 4.0.0 (64-bit) .. the first 3 are UNIX-Based (of which LINUX is actually directly Built-On) .. the second 2 are more PC Windows/DOS-Based .. & the remainder are more Server/Media-Box/NAS-Based OS'es too .. and all of these (Plus manyyyyyy more besides ..... ) are Free OS'es too ..... lol. :-)

Its been a wee while since I've done this kinda Homework .....

Thanx for the Input. :-)

So you vote cold because you already knew it was free?
As OP says - not everyone knows of free alternatives. This IS a good freebie.

just to be pedantic, linux is not "built on" unix at all ;) most of the original concepts are "unix like" but the code is entirely different.

I'll think you'll find LibreOffice is at https://www.libreoffice.org/ and not openoffice.org. (_;)

My bad, thats what I meant .. Unix ofcourse was the original .. & the strength of its tight 'Security Consciencious' Code was then re-Engineered by a load of Coders/Programmers trying to Pioneer some an Open-Source moment, & from there Linux was Born ..... :-)

cmon dude show some respect and do some research, linux was originated by one man, Linus Torvalds.

Not even close! Linux was born out of a student passing time by having a go at writing a kernel. UNIX is an OS - Linux is not.

The GNU operating system was created by a legion of coders looking to create an Open Source OS similar to Unix. However, this project, which started in the 80s has never had its own fully functional kernel.

Linus Torvolds was reliant on the GNU C compiler for the creation of his kernel, which would later be called Linux. These days many GNU based OSes use the Linux kernel. These include Debian, Ubuntu, Mint... In fact, virtually every Linux based distro.

On a side note, Android is based on the Linux kernel, not UNIX. BeOS had more relation to the Amiga OS than Windows. And just for fun, Mac OSX is built upon FreeBSD.
