I liek it. Free and more useful than Microsoft Office IMO. Also, it's Open Source so it's better by default.

It's FOSS for one thing. It's got a cooler logo than LibreOffice or MS Office, too! But seriously, it's also a great product, and far from what the media has been saying, it's anything but dead. Having just checked the Website a few moments ago, I noticed (a) they're hiring new developers, which a dying product wouldn't do; (b) the newest release was literally two days ago; (c) the Website itself is up-to-date and beautifully designed. The point is, it's perfect. =)

If you're searching a Suite, I advise you to use LibreOffice instead. And people who still using OpenOffice : you should really consider using LibreOffice. There is a well know bug (https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=126869) on Apache OpenOffice since 2016, it still unresolved (and I wonder if it will be one day), and it can corrompt your files and make them useless.

Here is a video of what can happen because of that bug : https://twitter.com/i/status/1136527439604133890 Knowing that now, continue using it or download it at your own risk.

Don't use this garbage! Apache OpenOffice is dead. There hasn't been any serious updates to the project in years. The pseudo-developers of this software should simply close the site and redirect people to LibreOffice icon LibreOffice or ONLYOFFICE icon ONLYOFFICE websites. Apache OpenOffice used to be good though, many years ago.

That software is dead and not maintained anymore, use LibreOffice that's where the developers went.
