Re: Poll - Free Office Suites

I gave LibreOffice a shot since it was what all the cool kids were saying you should use for meritorious philosophical ideas, rather than functional reasons, but sadly my experience wasn't as smooth as it was with OpenOffice. LibreOffice touts a lot of features but I encountered a few issues with the interface and file compatibility that suggest they have a ways to go before its as polished as Open Office.

I use Apache's Open Office on Win 8. It is great. Looking forward to the soon to be released ver 4.

I tried Libre and it wouldn't install on Win 8. In the past, I had tried the OLD Open Office (Oracle's) on XP Pro and had nothing but problems. I tried Libre on XP Pro also and had lots of problems with it. So, I was very pleasantly surprised at how nice Apache's Open Office is on Win 8.

I tried libreoffice impress and it was slow as hell to switch slides when you are using the slideshows. I went back to Microsoft Office for that reason, it was driving me crazy.

OO here. It works great for me so I won´t change to anything else until the suite ceases to exist.
