The latest release is LibreOffice 4.4.0. Read about some of the improvements in the Release Notes.

If you run into any problems, let the QA Team know by filing a bug!

Libre Office is more than most of what is generally needed by a user... And it can follow Micro$oft on their needlessly endless standard change path.

Moved from LO to Kingston WPS Office recently. While not near as robust as LO, it meets my needs and I've found it to be quicker, lighter and more stable.

this thread is not really nice for the poll.

there are many office suites missing. There are no single terminal office suites, although there are many ones.

Why not even wine + ms office?

This is supposed to be a poll for applications that work specifically on Linux. If Wine + "Foo" is included, then all the polls will fall apart, since you could run anything from Windows in Wine...

And if some Linux application is missing, you could tell it so Jeremy can include it.

what about abiword and co?

what about other office linux suites?

what about terminal apps?

(for wine, maybe, ok)
However Wine + MS-Office is certainly already far superior than any linux office suites.
This is why it is not better to introduce wine.

Abiword is a word processor, not an office suite, so is not suitable for this category.

If you give specific examples I'm happy to see if they are eligible for the category and add them if they are.

Within 10-15 years, the more the time goes, the more people code in various languages, C++, Python,... and the code becomes a real mess mixing all those languages.

Libreoffice is bloated and slow.
This is really fantastic
Quote:
The software and hardware prerequisites for installing on Linux are as follows:

Linux kernel version 2.6.18 or higher;
glibc2 version 2.5 or higher;
gtk version 2.10.4 or higher;
Pentium-compatible PC (Pentium III, Athlon or more-recent system recommended);
256Mb RAM (512Mb RAM recommended);
Up to 1.55Gb available hard disk space;
X Server with 1024x768 resolution (higher resolution recommended), with at least 256 colors;
Gnome 2.16 or higher, with the gail 1.8.6 and at-spi 1.7 packages (required for support for assistive technology [AT] tools), or another compatible GUI (such as KDE, among others).

For certain features of the software - but not most - Java is required. Java is notably required for Base.

One nice thing. You may use:
https://office.live.com/start/Excel.aspx?omkt=en-US

For gnome, simple slides.
http://blogs.gnome.org/racarr/2010/0...ons-for-gnome/
http://lwn.net/Articles/386321/


years ago, there was a suite that could be promising but it was abandoned: SIAG, Gnumeric,...
http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/dsl-2.3jwm.jpg

For vectors, you can you use tkpaint. it is not slow such as inkscape.

People use wine and adobe illustrator. It works flawlessly and it is still even faster than inkscape running on linux. Tell me why?


wine + msoffice works, it is clean and it is even nicer and faster than libreoffice.
You can work with colleagues on same docs without troubles....


Look for instance how awesome is XPAINT.
But no-one never talk about it ...


What about LaTex or TeX?
You can make awesome slides with TeX, really. No need of beamer even.
Plain TeX can really make awesome slides and documents.
If you work on your code, you can make much much nicer pdf that looks as good or even better as powerpoint.
This one is a regular one (actually not very nice), which can be made much nicer.
https://tug.org/tug2014/slides/allen-demo.pdf


TeX/Latex/... shall be too into the list. For spreadsheet, well,... not really.

Someone mentioned about it above, to adapt the list. But ... the list is still unchanged.
Quote:
Abiword and Gnumeric. Also GoogleDocs, but neither appear on the list.
It is better not to worry too much about the thread (or about my post which isn't towards heavy office suites), since the list is not going to be updated by the author of the thread, as noticed above, unfortunately.
I wish that the poll of the thread would be really complete.



In my opinion, people shall NOT need a Supercomputer to run Office applications.

A little observation Jeremy, OpenOffice.org doesn't exist anymore. They call it Apache OpenOffice these days.

Although there is really no actual "GNOME Office" anymore, in older times the AbiWord + GNOME-DB + Gnumeric combination was considered as such. I think it would be wise to include this combo as an option, since so many distros include them as the default Office Suite of choice, and they are very good applications indeed.
