Overall Satisfaction with LibreOffice

LibreOffice is a useful software for my research as I am using the Linux platform. It seems like the alternative of Microsoft office. I have been using it for writing my manuscript, solving difficult calculations and making high-quality presentations. LibreOffice is being used by our research group. LibreOffice is free of cost where other alternatives cost you money. Overall, we are satisfied with the LibreOffice.
  • Statistical calculation
  • Presentation making
  • Manuscript write-up
  • Low-quality figure
  • Not easy to use for beginners
  • Major functions are missing in Libre presentations
  • Inexpensive
  • Not user-friendly
  • Best for Linux system
In my view, Microsoft office products are very much user-friendly and well documented. However, these products are very expensive where the LibreOffice is free of cost. Also if you have a Linux platform, the best office product will be the LibreOffice. Although LibreOffice is not easy to use, but with time you can master it. For these reasons, I am using LibreOffice.
LibreOffice is well suited where you do not need in-depth functionality of the software. As a beginner, If you want to do simple things like making demo presentations and noting down key points, then it is a very good software use. On the other hand, the functionality, ease of use are major problems in LibreOffice. However, by using LibreOffice, you will gain more knowledge and can be an expert in the future.
