      isisstelling Even if Microsoft Office is not free (as in its source is private), it is a very good application and is the industry standart for a reason. In my personal oppinion, some of the apps (like PowerPoint) are better than the LibreOffice correspondent (LibreOffice Impress).

      Apache OpenOffice vs LibreOffice opinions
      Most users think Apache OpenOffice is a great alternative to LibreOffice.
      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 vs LibreOffice opinions
      Almost everyone thinks ONLYOFFICE is a great alternative to LibreOffice.
      JohnFastman 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.

      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.

      WayneL86 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.

      ndlinn 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)

      Ornataweaver Pages is pragmatic. Very nicely designed as well. Free-Software movement should care more about Office apps. Google Docs is also competing at lightning speed.
