This app is so easy to use and I love all of the features. I'm a super user of Microsoft office but Libre Office is #1 in my book.

LibreOffice Writer is a powerful word processor, and in my opinion, far superior to Word. It's fast, lightweight, easy to learn and use, and can accomplish anything from simple lists all the way up to formatting a book. All of our tech how-to guides I've created for our IT department and customer service team have all been done entirely in LibreOffice Writer, with no difficulties.

LibreOffice Writer is the best WYSIWYG word processor if you don't require collaboration. It's very customizable and relatively lightweight compared to other similar word processors.

I remove a star due to recurrent bugs I've encountered. None have caused me to lose progress or significantly delay my work, but I typically encounter a new "quirk" every time I use Writer. It's a minor annoyance that is not present on other word processors, but the other benefits of LibreOffice Writer make it worthwhile.

It's the free and open source alternative to Microsoft Word, what more could you ask for?

flexible, has all the tools but is lightweight. Had trouble saving it to my Linux system though.

It does the job, and it's totally free.

I prefer LibreOffice - Writer over Microsoft Word because it offers all features available in Word, I can edit my documents directly from the cloud, and when my document contains equations the result is much-much better than MS Word.
