    OpenOffice seems to be end-of-life. It doesn't receive as many code contributions as LibreOffice and has fewer features. LibreOffice is a successor to this project and is probably better for most users.

    Actually, (Apache) OpenOffice was before LibreOffice. The macro's of LibreOffice run smoothly in OpenOffice, and even more fluently with less flickering on radeon graphic adaptors.

    ONLYOFFICE is less functional than Libre Office, but it is open source and has the following advantage I find useful: It opens all Microsoft Office .doc and .docx files with better fidelity than Libre Office does. Especially those with embedded vector graphics, which Libre sometimes screws up. The functionality is more like Google docs or something (e.g. no plugins, etc.). But it's good to have around.

    The user experience is a lot more smoother than with LibrOffice, which desperatly needs a user interface overhaul. It looks a lot like Microsoft Office presentation, which threw me off at first, but is so much more understandable and enjoyable in the long-run!

    WPS Office vs LibreOffice opinions
    Some users think WPS Office is a great alternative to LibreOffice, some don't.
    JohnFastman

    WPS has the following drawbacks: 1) The 'free' version doesn't let you print freely (ie without a watermark, if at all), 2) Unlike Libre Office, it doesn't integrate with many popular plugins, e.g. Zotero or Mendeley. 3) It's not open source and therefore, in contrast to what another comment here claims, you don't know what the code is doing, and you don't know if it's spying on you or not.

    WPS office by default saves files in .docx format, so it's one less step you have to do. There have been zero crashes unlike Libre office, which on 3 different distros of linux (Linux Mint, Korora, and Arch linux) have all crashed, causing me to lose the file I was working on. Not a knock on Libre office, but WPS is more closely related to Microsoft Office as one of the best alternatives, without all of the spying.

    Easily the easist, fastest & best designed Office alternative, though it may lack some advanced functionality (I wouldn't know, as I primarily use it for standard, basic office suite use)

    Pretty similar to MS Office (uses the ribbon interface), very complete and powerful suite.
