    • A full alternative to Microsoft Office. basixJan 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Needed powerpoint processor for class. Libre's powerpoint processor didn't allow good note-taking (created giant text box under slide which made the slide itself super small). Guest • May 2018 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • It has all that MSO has and is more user friendly, faster and free! Guest • Jan 2019 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Apache Open Office is based on the old StarOffice, which 10-15 years ago was way ahead of MS Office - and so is AOO to-day. The other alternative is LibreOffice, which is also based upon the same old platform. Those two are especially efficient for work, but also fill any need a private user can have dansker13Sep 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
