It's easier to use than Libre Office.
A good alternative to MS Office if you don't want to buy it.
Very good compatibility.


Does NOT work with macOS Sierra

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

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.

Now I prefer Libreoffice: I trust more in Document Foundation than in Oracle, then it's opensource.

Oracle handed OpenOffice over to the Apache Foundation years ago. OOo is no more. Apache OpenOffice (AOO) has replaced it starting with 4.0.0. OpenOffice is compatible with other apps, but not their format. If you want some thing to be compatible with another app, you save in a format for that app, not the default OpenOffice format.
