I vote LibreOffice cause I don't approve of Oracle buying every competitor.

The only office suites I have used is MS Office and Open Office. My fresh Slackware has Koffice so I will be giving it a try. If I don't like it I will be getting Open Office.

I voted for Gnome Office. Gnumeric is the only tool I sometimes use and I found it to be more compatible with excel than calc.
Other than that I don't have any need for an office suit at home (MS Office at work because I have to ...).
I write my letters in latex (no shit).

I have been an Open Office user for a long time, but I'm going to try LibreOffice now that Oracle ownes OOo.

All my wife and I have used is open office mainly because it is compatible with M$ word and we have a lot of files that were put out in word so rather than have billy gates and that crowd we went with what we knew worked.

I've been using for a long time now but the stuff they are pulling sounds like an erosion of the FLOSS nature of the system to me. I'll switch to LibreOffice when they have a production version ready.

Voted again this year. However, now under the malignant hand of Oracle, I'm not so sure about next year.

I have used LibreOffice Writer to produce several documents with no issues, but I did not use stuff like automatic tables of contents and indexes. Worked fine.

Haven't had a chance to test the other components.
