OpenOffice.org is the free alternative to Microsoft Office. Even on a Mac, Open Office.org mostly feels and looks like a Windows application, but Mac users should have no trouble getting up and running with this multifeatured app.

With Open Office, you can create the same types of documents, spreadsheets, and presentations available in Microsoft Office and even save them with the MS Office extensions such as .doc or .ppt. OpenOffice.org also has its own file extensions, which can't be opened with their Microsoft Office counterparts, so you'll need to make sure you remember to save with the appropriate extension so MS Office users can read them. This is made much easier with the Preferences Panel, which lets you select the default file type for documents you create.

During our testing, the application performed very well; it handles MS Office documents with the same ease as its own native documents. And you don't need to be an advanced Office user to find all the features you used in Microsoft's suite. All the basic editing tools are available at a glance, so you can start using the application from the first launch.

Overall, OpenOffice.org is a very useful and powerful app for document editing and reading. We recommend this free app for any-level user who wants a less expensive way to create files and share them with OpenOffice.org or Microsoft Office users.

"This is a very nice free program."

October 27, 2010  |  By charlottegibbs

 |  Version: OpenOffice.org 3.3.0rc2

Pros

It is a free program and offers many of the same features as Word.

Cons

There isn't anything in the gallery, but I know clipart can be added.

Summary

This is a very good word processing program. It is user-friendly and, though, I haven't used all the features of this program, I am very pleased so far. Considering that this is a free program, makes it even more wonderful.

"Efficient, sensible, open-access office program."

October 25, 2010  |  By markomdmph

 |  Version: OpenOffice.org 3.3.0rc2

Pros

Efficient, standards-compliant, open-access office program. It cost not a penny. Even the updates are free.

Cons

Not every function is fully compatible with MS Office.

Summary

As a twenty-five year Macintosh fan-boy, I tremendously appreciate having OpenOffice in my armamentarium, along with Apple's own iWork. For professional reasons, I need to keep a copy of MS Office on my MacBook Pro, but only consider Excel to be significantly superior to its competitors. OpenOffice is more fully-featured than iWork, and I enjoy using it for larger projects. It's free. The upgrades are free. and using it supports the freeware cause. iWork is simpler and KeyNote is the best presentation software yet. If I didn't need an up-to-date version of Excel, I would not bother with MS Office.
