You should be able to vote now. IIRC, there is a requirement that you need to posted at least one post in order to able to vote, and you now fulfill that requirement.

I've stuck with OpenOffice. I can't say what I've seen of LibreOffice has anything that would make me change. If you use a word-processor at a professional level and have worked your way through a 500 page manual, there's a lot to be said with staying with what you know.

Once Oracle reared its ugly Ellison face to LibreOffice, after shattering an enthusiatic teenager's dreams of an F/OSS heir to System V UNIX with OpenSolaris and harnessing the Sun and its patents for redefining fair use in its dark quest to conquer the industry with buyouts and lawsuits, I switched to LO and have used it since, with a slightly more embittered heart and nostalgia for the F/OSS landscape of my slightly earlier youth.

I voted LO, as I use it most. It's recovery is astounding. Anyway, I don't see a need to do this annually. I think LO will win hands down.

Apache OpenOffice

Well,

I, like so many others, switched to LibreOffice when the developers split the codebase after Oracle said they were going to kill OpenOffice.

But, after whatever back-room arrangement was made between Oracle and Apache to turn all code and rights to OpenOffice over to Apache, I had been watching OpenOffice and am now using that regularly again instead of LibreOffice.

OpenOffice is currently much more stable than LibreOffice (as can be seen in the previous posts in this thread), and the inter-operability with M$ Office is light-years ahead of what it was while it was under Sun/Oracle.

Still, I'm curious to know just what it was that Apache had to give Oracle for OpenOffice. We know that Oracle doesn't like to give anything away for free! Hehe

o365 vs LO

I really would love to see all the various office suites would come together to put something competitive out there as a group. LO will certainly win this poll and is a great product.

The challenge is that for those of us who work in large corporations that live and breath by Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access, o365 is making LO less competitive for us Linux users as their are no conversion issues to deal with and the 20% of things you can't do through the web that you needed the thick-client for, often you can't do without some hoop-jumping in LO either.

I 100% support LO and FOSS and want to see them all succeed but I feel this fight for the best binary is a fighting a losing battle when the world is moving to the cloud. On that note, Google Docs/Sheets if they mature could end up giving o365 a run for the money too.

Where Abiword's GUI as polished as Gnumeric is...

Most of time i only need spreadsheet and WYSIWYG text edit.

LOffice is by far an overkill, but unavoidable due to lack of quality oprions.

Voted LO

I voted for LibreOffice. This is the one I use. But I also want to try the Apache OpenOffice, as I was using it in the past before the split.

LibreOffice gets another lopsided win. It has replaced OpenOffice as the standard office suite on Linux. A few distros ship with Calligra, GNOME Office, or Apache OpenOffice. It's very common to replace the other office suites with LibreOffice. Although, I have AO with my JULinux install. I do have LibreOffice 5.1.6 on Lubuntu and I have installed it on Slackware. It has been working very well so far.
