    • WPS office by default saves files in .docx format, so it's one less step you have to do. There have been zero crashes unlike Libre office, which on 3 different distros of linux (Linux Mint, Korora, and Arch linux) have all crashed, causing me to lose the file I was working on. Not a knock on Libre office, but WPS is more closely related to Microsoft Office as one of the best alternatives, without all of the spying. WayneL864 days ago Disagree   Agree

How I'd love Microsoft to be overthrown

Comment by aayushganesh
about LibreOffice Jul 2015

This suite is the closest to overthrowing MSOffice. You can save Calc and Impress Files under word formats and they will pass over with precisely 0 problems. Excel to Libreoffice may be problematic. Also, Calc has no auto-calculate facility, but a basic hand-held calculator is much cheaper and easier to use than Excel.

LibreOffice 4.4.3

Comment by BaroqueandBlue
about LibreOffice and WPS Office May 2015

I deleted LibreOffice and went back to WPS Office 2014, an older version (9.1.0.4758) which was the last release before it went to a freemium product. Libre is slow as molasses, especially when starting cold. The developers could cut the execution time considerably by making the install more optional, such as only installing the writer and spreadsheet, instead of the whole suite...or making a stand-alone writer...but they've never had any interest in doing this. WPS Office, even with its three programs, is lightening fast and still the most compatible with Microsoft documents. Libre's recent face-lift is an improvement, but WPS Office still wins in speed, interface, and compatibility.

LibreOffice is indeed a great open source office suite, but I found it to be too unstable on mac OS to be of any real use unfortunately.

I love competition

Positive Comment by Eostyx
about LibreOffice and Microsoft Office Word, Google Docs (Suite), WPS Office Feb 2012

I so wish something would dethrone the reining king of Office suites, MS Office 2010. It needs to get some major loss in market shares to actually create innovation instead of the cycle of patching UI re-releases.

I'll applaud it with all my vigour to see alternatives such as LibreOffice, Google Docs, KOffice & Kingsoft Office. Microsoft Office, while decent & has held back office suites by culling the competition through strong arming the business world into using it. LibreOffice is still in its infancy but with updates such as 3.5.0 we can see that given time they'll become worthy of standing up to the doom fortress Microsoft has carved over the years.

Ugly Mac icon

Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about LibreOffice Jul 2011

This comment is just a random thought: the Mac icon for LibreOffice is really ugly. Yes, it's the same icon as on Windows. But it just doesn't look right on the Mac. especially when you compare it with the icons for Apple's default apps, or even with other 3rd-party Mac apps. My biggest complaint would probably be that the icon is too big; it's noticeably larger than any other icon on my dock, and it doesn't help that 90% of the icon is just plain white. So yeah, it's a bit of an eyesore.

LibreOffice looks the exact same as OpenOffice.org

Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about LibreOffice and Apache OpenOffice Jun 2011

LibreOffice looks the exact same as OpenOffice.org, so don't expect some magical intensification of your daily productivity when you switch. The Document Foundation has only added a few small features, most of which work in the background, to the original OpenOffice.org suite (so far).

LibreOffice is a middle-finger to Oracle

about LibreOffice and Microsoft Office Suite Jun 2011

This piece of software is essentially a big middle-finger to Oracle, and though it further complicates the market of MS Office alternatives, it's quite nice and my new default Office app!
