Linux office suite competition

Filed under
LibO
Software

Let’s say you want to use an office suite on your favorite Linux distribution. All right, which one? Today, we will evaluate several worthy and less worthy candidates. The only criterion is that they run on Linux.

LibreOffice

Ever since it’s been forked off OpenOffice following Oracle’s acquisition, this suite has become an instant champion in the name of the free software cause. It gained popularity and support almost overnight, and has taken the lead as the dominant open-source, free, cross-platform office productivity toolbox. LibreOffice is available in virtually all and any Linux distribution repository, and you can use it on other operating systems, too.

Development is quick and hot, and new versions are coming out all the time. The recent hallmark 4.0 release was a significant milestone in the project’s life, and it marks an almost complete departure from its ancestor. But that’s just technical details.
