Microsoft Office vs OpenOffice – LibreOffice

software-osMicrosoft Office vs OpenOffice / LibreOffice

For many people, Microsoft Office Word is symbolic of word processing generally. They just don’t understand or care that there was once a software program just like WordPerfect, or that many people work with LibreOffice, AbiWord, and also numerous other programs. For them, .doc is all they understand and definately will ever open. Do not even attempt to induce them with .rtf files, you will get into some serious trouble.

In this fact, you have to work with these people, occasionally, if the count of affected customers surpasses one. There’s a chance you’re made to send them your text files. Then when I say text, this means a binary file format of some type used by a word processing software. When I say word processing, I mean Word. Microsoft, Office, Word.

Since Oracle is hated in the open-source online community, and most of the time for a valid reason, OpenOffice ceased becoming a software preferred by people who needed a free office suite, and it became LibreOffice. The two are very similar, although LibreOffice has seen more development recently. Therefore, for people who are fond of free programs, they will most likely be using LibreOffice to create their documents.
