OpenOffice.org vs. LibreOffice

Filed under
LibO
OOo

On September 28, 2010, LibreOffice was announced as a fork of the OpenOffice.org office suite. In the weeks since then, there have been promises of innovation and change from LibreOffice, and an attempt at dignified silence from OpenOffice.org.

However, it was only last week that the two rivals released their 3.3 versions, and users had the chance to see whether the differences in the culture of the projects made any difference in the code.

Unfortunately, tracking the differences is not easy. For one thing, while the improvements over the previous common release 3.2 are numerous, few are major.

Just as importantly, although both OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice issued lists of new features, the lists are structured and worded differently, and emphasize different features.

However, a point-by-point comparison shows that while the new releases have numerous improvements over version 3.2 of the code, the advantage seems to lie with LibreOffice.
