Lotus Symphony is a much more professional looking app than LibreOffice or any of the other free options, and it has a vastly superior presentations app. Unfortunately, it just doesn't seem quite as stable as the competition, either. I'm not sure why, but I've had it crash and lose a lot of data at times, whereas I almost never have this happen with any of the competition.

It's a shame, because it's really a better office suite. I keep it installed for presentations, but it's just not reliable enough to be my main word processor. If they could fix some of these problems, IBM would have a real Microsoft Office competitor on their hands, but I doubt it's really a priority for them.

Crashing regularly is a hallmark of any product with Lotus in the name, especially Lotus Notes which is widely derided and has spawned serveral "Lotus Notes Sucks" websites over the years, including this one.. http://lotusnotessucks.4t.com :-)

If your looking for a good out of the box third party Office Suite then this is for you. Been playing around for almost an hour, and have to say that for a free application this is sweet. It is fast and really quite smooth. It has a pleasant UI that is easy on the eyes. It will open most Excel and Word documents, however, it doesn't save back to those formats. It will save in Microsoft RTF.

It's UI is a great deal nicer than LibreOffice, NeoOffice, or any of the other free Office applications. It is easy to use and learn. It would be great for small business, school work, and just around the house. It can be modified to fit any need.

It also has a large library of plugins for just about job.

Highly recommend this for those just looking for a good, but free Office Suite.
