Featured: 2/19/2013 LibreOffice [Tools]

LibreOffice is a free comprehensive, professional-quality productivity suite that you can download and install. It is a powerful alternative to Microsoft Office.

The components of LibreOffice:

  • Writer is the word processor inside LibreOffice. Use it for everything, from dashing off a quick letter to producing an entire book.
  • Calc is the spreadsheet that manages your numbers and helps with difficult decisions.
  • Impress is a fast and easy way to create effective multimedia presentations. Create presentations that look professional.
  • Draw lets you build diagrams and sketches from scratch.
  • Base is the database front-end of the LibreOffice suite. With Base, you can seamlessly integrate your existing database structures into the other components of LibreOffice.
  • Math is a simple equation editor that lets you lay-out and display your mathematical, chemical, electrical or scientific equations quickly in standard written notation.

LibreOffice also includes a PDF file creator, meaning you can distribute documents that can be opened and read by users of almost any computing device or operating system.

There is a large base of satisfied LibreOffice users worldwide. It is available in more than 30 languages and for all major operating systems, including Windows, Mac, and GNU/Linux.

The roots of LibreOffice go back 20 years. Thousands of users regularly take part in beta testing of new LibreOffice versions. The development process is completely open, and LibreOffice has been extensively tested by security experts to verify your safety.

The simple-to-use yet powerful interface is easily customized. Microsoft Office users should find the switch to LibreOffice fairly easy, with a familiar look and feel. Compatibility with nearly all common file formats means you can easily import files from Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, and can easily save to Microsoft Office and other formats when needed.

LibreOffice is totally free. You don't have to pay anything to download it, install it, or use it. You can copy LibreOffice as many times as you like, and you can give away and distribute copies to anyone.
