LibreOffice is the Office Suite of the year.

Why? Not because of what it's done, or actually accomplished, but for the big splash it made onto the scene by virtue of it forking from OOo.

More to the point, because of its very significance to the FOSS community, evidenced by the almost universal decision by most Linux Distros to carry LO, instead of OOo, in future releases.

All this while The Document Foundation has only just released RC3.

You go girl! MMmm, MMmm, MMmmmmm.

Definitely have to agree. LibreOffice in all respects is what I use and also a *very* good drop-in replacement of OOo, which has plenty of Oracle junk placed in it. And the hype about LibreOffice pays off.

On a side note, sees "San Clemente, California" in the side panel of this post... Surprising, see my signature...

could you include SoftMaker? It's not free or cheap but it's what I use and they have a native linux build.

SoftMaker received two or less votes multiple years in a row, so has been removed.

I voted OpenOffice. I don't see the point of you guys switching to LibreOffice because of Oracle. Real world is about good products and solutions, not ideals and dreams.
If the software is good, why not use it ?
