    • Freedom. If you care about that go for LibreOffice. Also you've got pretty much the same common feature, which is quick enough for everyone. Word stay good if you really want to go deeper in some modificatio, but it's really not worth the price (alone without Office 365). Guest • Apr 2017 Disagree   Agree
