LibreOffice 3.3: First Impressions

Filed under
LibO

If you’re looking for something better than OpenOffice.org (OO.o), you’ve found it with LibreOffice. It has all the OO.o goodness that you’ve come to love and expect with a few enhancements to boot. And, there’s no fear of a malevolent corporate overlord pulling the plug on it because it’s not a revenue-generating product. LibreOffice 3.3 is the beginning of a new era of freedom for cross-platform office suites with its LGPL v3 license, community-driven development, extensive language support, and it’s no cost delivery model.

LibreOffice is a cross-platform (Windows, Macintosh, Linux) OO.org derivative productivity suite that includes the six original OO.org applications: Writer, Calc, Base, Impress, Calc, and Draw. The LibreOffice project has also merged code, patches, and other resources from the now discontinued Go-oo project.
