Editors' Review

+

A credible rival to MS Office, OpenOffice.org includes powerful applications for making text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, diagrams, and databases, as well as HTML and XML documents. Not only does it let you edit basic documents, such as letters and faxes, it also handles equations and complex and multipart documents with bibliographies, reference tables, and indexes.

The interface is similar to that of MS Office, and even advanced Office users will find almost everything they're used to: templates, collaborative features (versions, recording changes), macros, and even a programming language. OOo, as it's known, lets you open and save documents in formats as diverse as MS Office formats, PDF, HTML, and XML. It can also import files from those formats, as well as WordPerfect and others. However, it normally saves files in the open-standard Oasis OpenDocument XML format, for maximum compatibility with other applications.

The latest versions of OpenOffice have seen a spurt of growth in the extensions available for the program. These include templates for professional writers, an export tool for bidirectional functionality with Google Docs, blog publishing, and others. Blog publishing assistance especially strikes us as a natural area for word processing to grow toward.

We were pleased to find that stability has improved too. No doubt about it, the multilingual and crossplatform OpenOffice.org is a compelling option for anyone in search of an alternative office suite.

"Not the version claimed"

June 27, 2012  |  By Kinell61

 |  Version: OpenOffice.org 3.2.1

Pros

None at all 10 characters.

Cons

I wanted 3.2.1 which has a British English version. I selected the 3.2.1 download link and got 3.4, which does not!

It's a con!

"good to fair"

January 21, 2011  |  By oregonnerd1

 |  Version: OpenOffice.org 3.2.1

Pros

free and process .txt, ..doc and .pdf files

Cons

oracle/ellison bought sun, which means an uncertain future for OO

Summary

Good for the time being. Follow the ones to the new office suite, which isn't quite functional; I will. Something is going to happen to this, quite possibly a for-pay suite or else dropping it entirely as far as safety updates. Also has a component that loads very slowly on startup.

"Why buy any office software? This program does it all."

January 12, 2011  |  By jonwagner

 |  Version: OpenOffice.org 3.2.1

Pros

It does more than the average person ever needs. Even for business applications, it is more than adequate and has ALL the features other programs only offer in premium or 'professional' editions.

Cons

There is nothing I dislike. I was using the text editor, too, but have now gone to a desktop publishing program for this purpose.

Summary

I highly recommend it. Why buy office software?
