"Still Bombing"

May 10, 2011  |  By zunipus

 |  Version: LibreOffice 3.3.2

Pros

This is a truly FREE version of a branch from OpenOffice. It represents progress away from the stagnating Oracle run OpenOffice project.

Cons

It bombs. That is unacceptable when composing text. Better luck next update.

Summary

LibreOffice is a branch off the now stagnating OpenOffice Open Source project. Once Oracle purchase Sun Microsystems, the OpenOffice project essentially ground to a halt. ? of the volunteer programmers started LibreOffice to continue its progress. Oracle booted them from the overall OpenOffice project in response.

In light of the MANDITORY "donation" required for NeoOffice v3.2 (which is indeed a contradiction in terms), LibreOffice has become the next best option for Mac users.

Sadly, LibreOffice has been consistently unstable and bombing since its initial release. This is unacceptable while composing text. Until such time as the stability problem is solved, I cannot recommend it. Apart from the stability problem, LibreOffice promises to be an excellent replacement for NeoOffice.

"Yea!! PPC Support!"

March 22, 2011  |  By TxTom21

 |  Version: LibreOffice 3.3.2

Pros

I have been using 'unofficial' releases of OpenOffice for PPC for quite a while. It's great to see that these older, yet still powerful Macs are back in the official release. The software works as advertised and can't beat the price!

Cons

OpenOffice and now LibreOffice has never been known for speed. This continues.

Summary

As this suite does almost everything the 'other suite' does and does it for free, this is (to me) a no-brainer. I've gotten our office on it now and we haven't been bothered by compatibilities and we love the price. Free PDF output, Word and Excel export. We are HAPPY.
