Apache OpenOffice Reviews

Does NOT work with macOS Sierra

Negative Review by Rivernet1
about Apache OpenOffice Feb 2017

It will install, but will crash constantly. It also wants you to in stall the Java SDK 6, which no longer supported. Even if you were able to get that and install it, you can't install it because AOO keeps crashing.



OpenOffice and Libreoffice: free alternative to Microsoft Office

Positive Review by Danilo_Venom
about Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice, Microsoft Office Suite Jun 2011

OpenOffice is the best free alternative to Microsoft Office.
Unfortunately not everyone has OpenOffice, so I prefer to save the files in Office format, as .doc for Word, because the extensions of OpenOffice, like .ODT for the Writer, can't be opened by everybody: it's just a precaution :P
If I have to send my file to someone else, I export it in PDF: OpenOffice has already integrated this feature.
