Overall Satisfaction with LibreOffice

LibreOffice is my default tool for document creation in my business and personal life. LibreOffice is a free and Open Source office suite application similar to Microsoft Office, it offers word processing, Spreadsheets, Publishing and presentation tools. As a small business operator, it provides considerable savings on the cost of a document creation software. And in not using a commercial application, I have not missed anything. LibreOffice does everything most commercial office suite software does, and more.
  • LibreOffice can open and save your documents in the most popular file formats, including Microsoft Office doc.
  • You can easily export your document as a PDF document (retaining your content format) from with Libre Office; no additional cost or plugin is required
  • You can extend the functionality of LibreOffice by using free plugins e.g language plugins, dictionary, formatting, and other types of plugins.
  • Some MS Office documents' special formatting in Word and Excel doesn't convert well when you are opening these documents using LibreOffice.
  • Libre Office is free, consequently saving me and my business lots of money daily.
In the past, I tried Microsoft and Word Perfect. I was compelled to purchase a new version almost every time there was an upgrade so I could utilize the improved features either as a creator or a user. LibreOffice has a regular and consistent free update cycle. Templates and plugins are free and easily accessible and also easy to install.
I can't think of any scenario when LibreOffice isn't appropriate. Once it's a case of document creation, LibreOffice will and can help you there. Libre Office is great for any business application or any academic environment.
