      In my opinion WPS gives you the closest thing to MS Office. If you are familiar with MS Office you should be able to use WPS right away. This is the main reason I prefer it to OpenOffice or Libre Office

      Has many of the essential features, is relatively light on resources, is Open Source (a big +++) and works well with native MS file formats. Only Office also runs on Linux platform.

      It's much faster than Microsoft Office, it's compatible with MSO, can do the same, and it's free. I have tried several MSO alternatives, and OnlyOffice is by far the best.

      forgionealberico Clean modern interface, more compatible with MSOffice than Libre or Open, but heavier to run on slow hardware probably

      Between OnlyOffice, FreeOffice, WPS and LibreOffice, the closest i could get to a Microsoft Word document was with OnlyOffice and since i need the best compatibility possible, i liked OnlyOffice.

      dansker13 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

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

      fris I was using only Libre Office for years on Linux. Now I use FreeOffice and Latex via VS Code the most. FreeOffice is fast and streamlined, the UI is well built and looks good, very compatible with MS proprietary formats. It's also available for several platforms. There's a commercial alternative with more features too if you need support. Just try it.
