LibreOffice. The Best Free Alternative to Microsoft Office.
You can’t be blamed for believing you have no choice but to use Microsoft Office for your word processing, spreadsheet and other formal, work related activities.
You might even believe that any free alternative is incompatible, hard to use and simply too much trouble.
You couldn’t be more wrong.
I’ve been using LibreOffice for several years now. I’ve created and exchanged Word documents, spreadsheet template invoices, presentation software with clients and friends who have Microsoft Office for both Windows and Apple Macs – all with no problems at all.
I’ve even installed LibreOffice on clients computers and they have adapted to it and continued to work on the files they had previously created using Microsoft Office all with no problems.
LibreOffice is free, as are all the upgrades and updates but I give them a donation of several pounds every time there is an upgrade
Here is what Techradar says about LibreOffice:
“LibreOffice is so good, you’ll wonder why you ever paid for office software. It’s compatible with all Microsoft document formats, and has almost every feature you’ll find in the latest versions of Word, PowerPoint and Excel.
The suite contains six programs to cover every common office task: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base. The last three are tools you won’t find in many other free office suites, and are designed for vector diagrams, mathematical functions and databases, respectively. The latter is particularly useful; free alternatives to Microsoft Access are hard to find.”
