OpenOffice.org is both an Open Source product and a project. The product is a multi-platform office productivity suite. It includes the key desktop applications, such as a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation manager, and drawing program, with a user interface and feature set similar to other office suites.
OpenOffice included a word processor (Writer), a spreadsheet (Calc), a presentation application (Impress), a drawing application (Draw), a formula editor (Math), and a database management application (Base). Its default file format was the OpenDocument Format (ODF), an ISO/IEC standard, which originated with OpenOffice.org. It could also read a wide variety of other file formats, with particular attention to those from Microsoft Office.
Ideal for students
Would be great product if it cost - free - no brainer! Highly recommended as a general purpose home /school / office application - rarely would the average user need anything more. Great value and worthy of support.
SImple and easy, the Best! Been using Open Office for about 10 years.I got my new desktop pc 6 Months ago, got rid of microsoft office, replaced it with Open office.I have done this over the years on all my laptops and pcs. Its so easy to use, I love it.
Great free word processing. Ive been using the program for years now, ever since I switched to a Mac. Originally I was running Microsoft Office under Windows (dual operating systemThe switch from set-up). After a few months, I realized that OpenOffice let me do everything that Office did - including reading and saving documents in Office and PDF format. I have not used it for anything but word processing, but it does a great job on that.
Apache OpenOffice is a great alternative to Microsoft. If you are looking for an Office Suite that has most of the features like Microsoft Office, but is one-hundred percent free, then choose Apache OpenOffice. You will not be disappointed.
This free software reduces office costs. I sincerely recommend this software.
