Pros

Full set of productivity apps: LibreOffice includes apps for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, databases, and math formulas -- a collection of tools comparable to Microsoft Office. A refreshed user interface presents a modern look and better use of screen real estate.

Office compatibility: LibreOffice provides cross-suite compatibility with Microsoft Office, handling most of its important file formats. The update includes better support for Apple's Pages, Numbers, and Keynote files.

Free: The suite is free for individuals and businesses. You can make a donation to the Document Foundation, the not-for-profit group that supports the suite's development.

Cons

Limited Web-based and mobile app support: LibreOffice has an Android viewer app and plans to release mobile and Web-based apps. But at the moment, with Microsoft and Google pushing their productivity suites to the Web and mobile devices, LibreOffice's limited support beyond desktop systems is a drawback for mobile users.

Bottom line

For individuals and businesses who are budget-minded and looking for cross-app compatibility with Microsoft Office, LibreOffice is a solid alternative. The lack of Web-based and mobile apps can be an obstacle.
