Calligra vs. LibreOffice: Which Is The More Productive

Filed under
LibO
Software

Is LibreOffice the only worthwhile office suite for Linux users? Possibly not, thanks to KDE’s Calligra.

LibreOffice, and its predecessor OpenOffice, have long been known as the leader in free office suites available for all Linux. While it’s certainly the most popular choice among Linux users, it certainly isn’t the only full-fledged office suite available for that operating system. Calligra is another choice for a complete office package.

With two very good choices at hand, which one do you go for? I compared these two office suites head-to-head on features, design, and compatibility to see which one is the best.

LibreOffice

LibreOffice, for those how aren’t aware, was forked from OpenOffice’s code back in 2010. Sun Microsystems had the rights to OpenOffice at the time, but Sun Microsystems was bought out by Oracle – and people feared Oracle would shut down the OpenOffice community and turn the project into a closed-source one.
