    Apache OpenOffice Draw vs Axure RP opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Apache OpenOffice Draw is still a legitimate alternative to Axure RP, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    OpenOffice is a great set of tools, but Draw just does not have the functionality of Axure. Axure RP is a prototyping tool that lets you create a prototype of a complete website with some complex logic to demonstrate some functionality, draw just doesn't have a toolset for that as far as I know
