Overall Satisfaction with LibreOffice

We use LibreOffice across the whole organization. Thanks to being free, it helps you to save money without losing any functionality while working with all kinds of Office files, like Docs or Sheets for example, which we use on a daily basis.
  • Full compatibility with other Office suites, thus avoiding any problem derived of compatibility issues.
  • You can get it for free from its website. This way you can save money!
  • Allows you to add more features using extensions that can be found on the internet
  • Thanks to being open source, it has a great and big community behind fixing problems and updated the suite.
  • It would be good update the UI for a more modern one, it wont make It work worse, but it's a bit dated.
  • Sometimes it consume more system resources than I would like, they can improve in this.
  • The Sheets function needs an update to make it more intuitive to use for people not used to work with Sheets
  • First, we save money using it instead if other paid suites, which always helps the business.
  • Works on older computers, allowing you to install it even if you don't have the latest hardware.
  • As everybody uses it, there's no compatibility issues.
At first we used OpenOffice, but since Oracle took it over, the updates started to take more to go live and it hasn't improved like LibreOffice has.
If you need to work with docs and sheets it will work great, but with presentations it can be a bit confusing if you are not used to working with them.

Not Available - The support if you would like to call It that way, its the community itself.
As of now, I haven't had the need for exceptional support.
