Download/Usage Note
Requires Java Runtime Environment. Administrator rights are needed for the installation process.

ProsCons

Open Source

Complete office productivity suite

Compatible with Microsoft Office

Convoluted help: LibreOffice's Help File contains very little information. There is also a Discussion page, presumably for users to exchange information and ask questions, but that is completely blank and doesn't allow you to enter anything.

It takes time to learn certain advanced features

Java Runtime Environment requirement: LibreOffice requires the latest version of Java Runtime Environment for certain features, including creating a new database. Without this extra installation, you won't be able to take full advantage of all program features.

LibreOffice is A great alternative to Microsoft Office, LibreOffice is a must-try for managing your various office projects.LibreOffice embeds several applications that make it the most powerful Free & Open Source Office Suite on the market: Writer, the word processor, Calc, the spreadsheet application, Impress, the presentation engine, Draw, drawing and flowcharting application and so on.

LibreOffice is an open-source personal productivity suite that gives you six feature rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs, writer, calc, impress, draw, math, and base. Support and documentation is free. LibreOffice also comes configured with a PDF file creator, meaning you can distribute documents that you’re sure can be opened and read by users of almost any computing device or operating system.

LibreOffice is a free suite of apps for creating text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and more, which you can then save in Microsoft Office formats. With LibreOffice, you get nearly all the functionality of paid word processing and other programs without the hefty price tag.

Text Document is relatively synonymous with Microsoft Word, where Spreadsheet is like Excel. Presentation mirrors Microsoft’s PowerPoint, and Database is similar to Access. Then you also have two additional programs in Drawing and Formula, which are an added bonus to the entire package. LibreOffice is compatible with Microsoft Office’s document formats and also supports PDFs natively. It also has its own document format called Open Document.

Writer is the word processor inside the program. Use it for everything, from dashing off a quick letter to producing an entire book with tables of contents, embedded illustrations, bibliographies, and diagrams.

Base is the database front-end of the LibreOffice suite. With Base, you can seamlessly integrate your existing database structures into the other components of Libre Office, or create an interface to use and administer your data as a stand-alone application.

Math is a simple equation editor that lets you lay-out and display your mathematical, chemical, electrical or scientific equations quickly in standard written notation. Even the most-complex calculations can be understandable when displayed correctly. E=mc2.

Calc tames your numbers and helps with difficult decisions when you’re weighing the alternatives. Analyze your data with Calc and then use it to present your final output. Charts and analysis tools help bring transparency to your conclusions.

Impress is the fastest and easiest way to create effective multimedia presentations. Stunning animation and sensational special effects help you convince your audience. Create presentations that look even more professional than the standard presentations you commonly see at work. Get your colleagues’ and bosses’ attention by creating something a little bit different.

Draw lets you build diagrams and sketches from scratch. A picture is worth a thousand words, so why not try something simple with box and line diagrams?

Familiar interface: In LibreOffice, each program’s interface will be familiar to anyone who’s used Microsoft Office. Whether you’re creating a presentation, a document, or a spreadsheet, you’ll be able to quickly find the tools and features you’re looking for, grouped just as you’d expect them to be.

Additional programs: In addition to the three core programs (Writer, Calc, and Impress), LibreOffice offers apps for drawing, math formulas, and databases. There is even a Database Wizard to guide you through the process of creating a new database.

Easy sharing: While the default file format for this program is ODT, you can save documents in several other formats. That includes Microsoft Office file formats, making it easy to share LibreOffice files with others. You can also open Microsoft Office files.

LibreOffice is a good alternative to Microsoft Word or other paid word processing programs and office suites. Its apps are accessible and organized in a familiar way, and the suite includes a few bonus apps. Power users will have to install Java Runtime Environment to get the most out of the program, but casual users can likely skip this step and just enjoy the basic functions of word processing, spreadsheet creation and management, and presentation construction  all for free.
