Apache OpenOffice Comments

Completely obselete

Negative Comment by Jop
about Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice Oct 2016

Almost all of the OpenOffice employees have left and are working on LibreOffice. As a result, OpenOffice isn't updated anymore and has a lot of issues now. So use LibreOffice instead.


Used to be good

Negative Comment by ruskelljd
about Apache OpenOffice Jun 2016

This app used to be great. Microsoft office is good if you're rich and have a ton of resources if not then this used to be the app to go to. Now it needs to be rewritten from so many people working on it that it is worse then MS office. Open source apps usually end up this way. Too many people working on them and not coordinated properly. I just switched to Google office for most things.


Openoffice is dying

Comment by Venom88
about Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice Sep 2015

Last version, 4.1.1, was released a year ago, on August 21, 2014, and, as reported on Wikipedia

The current download contains a serious security vulnerability, known since April 2015.

Apparently all the old users switched to Small LibreOffice iconLibreOffice , its most updated fork.

i admire their efforts but eventually ms office is still far more powerful. anyway, for most standard tasks, oo will do the job


This is NOT better than Microsoft Office

Negative Comment by calends
about Apache OpenOffice Aug 2012

C'mon people...

I know you have allegiances to all-things-free, but calling Apache Open Office better than Microsoft Office is a complete joke. I've actually used both extensively (in an office environment) and Apache doesn't even come close. The PDF importing is buggy, the Office file import is buggy, among other things...

Over time since Oracle has taken over, has sucked more and more.

about Apache OpenOffice Jun 2011

Yes, it's in order to avoid trademark issues in some countries where the name 'OpenOffice' is owned by other companies.

Btw, users might be interested in checking out the story of OpenOffice vs LibreOffice, start with a Google search: LibreOffice started out as a fork of OpenOffice, but is managed by a foundation, whereas OpenOffice is more or less run by Oracle.

Runs just as good on Linux as Windows 7!

I'm so glad they haven't used the evil banner style Microsoft has followed in 2007+. Instead of simplifying the UI they just hide it behind tabs! Thank you, OpenOffice, for doing your UI the right way!

Note about my edit: it's not Open Office, correct?

Microsoft Office is by far the best office suite, no question. But Open Office is definitely next in line, and of course, it's free.

Comment by Ronnie
about Apache OpenOffice Jun 2011

Beware of Writer the Open Office alternative to Microsoft Word. I've sent my resume as a Open Office "Word" document to major corporations. I've been emailed many times by Microsoft Word users unable to open my resume. Beware of Open Office. If it's important information your sending get Microsoft Office. Microsoft makes it difficult for alternatives to function within their system. You just may lose an opportunity for a good job if you don't use Microsoft's Word. Mirosoft calls it security but it's really a way to keep freeware from functioning and making you pay for their software.
