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.

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

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.

I have to admit it's by far not as advanced as MS Word, even if it's much better than Google Docs. Eventually crashes the most likely when opening .docx documents, so recommended to save your progress regularly. Many graphical options missing, many not working as they should, often new formating needed. I always hated Word for missing simplicity, but once you learn to do with it, it's kinda irreplaceable. Still for the most users it's much better option than paying for MS Office.
