Office Suite of the Year


Which Office suite do you prefer? This poll has traditionally not been very close, so we're interested in feedback on whether you'd like to see it included next year.

Voted Libreoffice but I like using FreeOffice on my low spec gear instead.
Only thing about using freeoffice is they pester one to buy the professional
version via email which this scooter tramp can live with.

As far as being included next year. I am more of a greasy hand guy than a
office desk clerk type of office software user.

So as long as I know where to look for what I need. I care neither one way or the other if this category is continued.

I use Libre office, but I only need it a few times a year, so I agree with rokytnji.

But I also use abiword for simple tasks, and the difficult to open.

Each year I look upon these polls with interest to see if I'm missing something that evolved unnoticed by me.

I love seeing my friends faces when they here about FOSS and it's progress.

Thank you Jeremy and "I'll keep coming back"! Happy new year! :-)

Office Suite

LibreOffice hands down. I have to work with MS users and have no problems doing so with LO.

LibreOffice for its being the most complete office suite on Linux. However, as a Slackware user, I use Calligra most often since it is shipped with Slackware and does what I need it to do.

I prefer one that's easy to use, and currently that seems to be LibreOffice.

I have found the Libre Office to very easy to use. Just recently I have been digging into Libre Office Impress. So far I have found everything available in these packages that I have had need of.

Thanks.

LibreOffice - still worth including next year. Interesting to see others out there, and perhaps one day it'll be closer.

LibreOffice winning with 90.44% of the vote and increasing its percentage over the 2014 LQ awards. This could lead to another thread of whether Slackware leader Pat Volkerding should replace Calligra with LibreOffice in Slackware-current when work starts on the version after 14.2. It is probably worth it to add 30 megabytes to the install disk in order to have the most popular open source office suite. I also have JuLinux 10, which is based on Xubuntu 14.04; and that ships Apache OpenOffice which is very similar to LibreOffice.

LibreOffice is good enough for many purposes. For example, business, home and academic users. Thanks LO!

No great surprise on the results here. Even though I haven't been a fan (now with 5.0 and even more 5.1 that's changing), I expected LO to dominate. I am somewhat surprised by how FEW votes there were for OpenOffice. Kinda shows just how much momentum they lost when LO was forked.
