LibreOffice 4.1.3 - Final

LibreOffice is the free power-packed Open Source personal productivity suite for Windows, Macintosh and Linux, that gives you six feature-rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base. Support and documentation is free from our large, dedicated community of users, contributors and developers. You, too, can also get involved!

Features:

Writer is the word processor inside LibreOffice. Use it for everything, from dashing off a quick letter to producing an entire book with tables of contents, embedded illustrations, bibliographies and diagrams. The while-you-type auto-completion, auto-formatting and automatic spelling checking make difficult tasks easy (but are easy to disable if you prefer). Writer is powerful enough to tackle desktop publishing tasks such as creating multi-column newsletters and brochures. The only limit is your imagination.

Calc tames your numbers and helps with difficult decisions when you're weighing the alternatives. Analyze your data with Calc and then use it to present your final output. Charts and analysis tools help bring transparency to your conclusions. A fully-integrated help system makes easier work of entering complex formulas. Add data from external databases such as SQL or Oracle, then sort and filter them to produce statistical analyses. Use the graphing functions to display large number of 2D and 3D graphics from 13 categories, including line, area, bar, pie, X-Y, and net - with the dozens of variations available, you're sure to find one that suits your project.

Impress is the fastest and easiest way to create effective multimedia presentations. Stunning animation and sensational special effects help you convince your audience. Create presentations that look even more professional than the standard presentations you commonly see at work. Get your collegues' and bosses' attention by creating something a little bit different.

Draw lets you build diagrams and sketches from scratch. A picture is worth a thousand words, so why not try something simple with box and line diagrams? Or else go further and easily build dynamic 3D illustrations and special effects. It's as simple or as powerful as you want it to be.

Base is the database front-end of the LibreOffice suite. With Base, you can seamlessly integrate into your existing database structures. Based on imported and linked tables and queries from MySQL, PostgreSQL or Microsoft Access and many other data sources, you can build powerful databases containing forms, reports, views and queries. Full integration is possible with the in-built HSQL database.

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. Even the most-complex calculations can be understandable when displayed correctly. E=mc2.

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

The best FREE office app for me specially since it does everything and is open source, so no hidden surprises..... Would be even better if they would make the ui as good looking as their website & most importantly include a note taking application!!!

Nice free and decent office suite.

It is truly the worst office program I have ever used, not trolling just stating my opinion, it is god-awful in every way.

What's wrong with you people? The program is FREE and as always, there's room for improvement. I actually tried Writer and Calc (equivalents of Word and Office) and they are more or less Office 2003 equivalents. Sure, I miss the ribbon interface of Office, but, for the most people, LibreOffice is GOOD ENOUGH. If you don't like them, fine, go and buy Office for several hundred bucks.

The poor man's office suite.

Honestly, if you're not using it for work, then this is all most people need. It's not suitable for work simply because Microsoft Office is the Standard and until a competing Office product offer feature parity and total compatibility, it shall remain so.

The damn name needs to change though, seriously. They might as well add "Nacho" to the title. No one likes the word "Libre".

It's just a ****ing name, and just as "stupid" as GratisOffice.

I wouldn't name it that either, Mr. Nacho

quite sad that you'd say something like that. If you want users to use something else, then pay for the software.

Calling someone "Mr. Nacho" is hurtful, uncool & clearly unacceptable.

In each of my hands, there is a gift. Hand #1, is a palm-sized clump of dookie. Hand #2 is a dead rodent. Please choose and accept my dearest of apologies, Mr. Gratis

No, thanks! Please keep your gifts to yourself. You need to wash your hands immediately! I hope that dead rodent doesn't give you bubonic plague!

Actually, I quite like the name Mr. Gratis.

they should go all out and call it 'spanish' office.

i've started using it at 4.1.2 out of boredom. i'm surprised it didn't dork up excel/word created file.

however, the unified 'home' screen annoys me. i have separate shortcuts for calc and writer but it seems to want to go back to the 'home' screen. is there anyway to disable that?
