Kommentare: Of course, in some aspects, Libre Office cannot compete with Microsoft, but at the same time, it has all the software needed for work. It doesn’t demand powerful hardware and it is easier to learn. Office suite LibreOffice perfectly copes with most of the tasks associated with working in text or spreadsheet documents. This software package, without any tricks, is absolutely and unconditionally free. However, it is not perfect, especially if you switched from Microsoft Office. LibreOffice remains a highly competent office suite, and this free software continues to improve. Due to its rich functionality, LibreOffice is ideal for many people who need a free alternative to Microsoft Office.

Vorteile: LibreOffice is a powerful office suite with an intuitive interface and rich features aimed at productivity and creativity. LibreOffice includes several applications, such as Writer - for working with text documents; Calc - for working with spreadsheets; Impress - for creating presentations; Draw - for vector graphics and drawings; Base - for working with databases and, finally, Math, focused on working with various formulas. LibreOffice allows you to work with documents of all types. It is compatible with Microsoft Office documents and with the new open standard ODT (OpenDocument Formats). The interface of the software in the package is as simple as possible. There is a detailed "Help", so this office suite is perfect for inexperienced PC users; This is a completely free open-source product; It supports many languages; LibreOffice can be used on many UNIX-compatible systems, such as MS Windows, Mac, Linux; Low requirements for the hardware of the computer. It will start without any problems and will work even on the oldest computers.

Nachteile: But like any software, LibreOffice has its disadvantages:
The functionality of some LibreOffice programs is inferior to the functionality of similar programs from the MS Office package; Some programs that are in MS Office have no analogs in this package.

Kommentare: My organization generally follows linux principle to work upon. Opneness of code and development in open source technology like Kubernetes, java, python. Our primary os is Ubuntu. For that reasons, LibreOffice is a natural choice for Office work and collaborative report generations. Overall happy with my choice as libreoffice as it is not expensive as MS Office.

Vorteile: It is freely available. It supports the Windows, Linux both environment. Adaption of notebook bar recently is very helpful in organizing menus and choosing tasks. Most important tool for me as a report maker of whole day work is .. Export to PDF. Portable format support. Rapid and active development of this project is plus one point here. zotero plugin support for libre-office is undeniably useful for researcher and uni students open server collaboration facility is useful for online collaborative work support for wide variety of extension and file format makes it a desirable choice. some small suggestion box and tools are implemented very well targeting the need of end user

Nachteile: some issues are regarding formatting.. several times you get a faded document once you open an MS Word document here. There is compatibility issue with respect to MS format and The document foundation format. ODF formats are not widely acceptable due to dominance of Microsoft Office products. Recent changes in interface are good. but need more of that to match with modern era

Kommentare: Because there is no need to get a license in order to use it, it has been helpful in giving friends and family members who aren't tech-savvy access to this software on their own computer to be able to work freely on their own projects. It has worked really well on all major operating systems and it is a breeze to help out when something is not going as well as planned, since one file will open exactly the same on any machine. There is even a portable version of the suite that makes it possible to execute the software directly from a USB stick, which was also handy more than once. In work settings where there is no budget to install paid software on all machines, LibreOffice really is a lifesaver. Even though it is free, it has all the necessary features to get the job done and that is why it consistently becomes the number one choice to use, especially on Linux systems and in companies with less than ideal budget.

Vorteile: LibreOffice has a complete suite of tools that includes a word processor, a spreadsheet application, tools for drawing and presentation as well as a database manager. The word processor integrates flawlessly with other components of the suite: you can easily enter mathematical formulae, insert tables from a spreadsheet or drawings as multimedia files. It can also export to PDF with great results any kind of document that's opened with it. Apart from PDF, it can also export to various other formats depending on the type of document (including PNG, SVG, HTML, EPUB, etc.). One other clear advantage of LibreOffice is that it is free (as in open source) and uses by default open formats, which makes it easy to use with different software that use the same file extensions. It's also quite lightweight and works even on older systems. Since it works on different operating systems including Windows, MacOS and Linux, it can be used in work environments with machines used for different purposes without any problem. There are many templates and extensions available to customize the experience and the way styles and paragraphs are handled makes more sense than with other alternatives: it is clear what result is obtained and changes are easy to apply to a whole document.

Nachteile: One has to be careful with the database manager as there are a number of cases of corrupted databases that have been reported. LibreOffice also tries its best to import files that use a format from other popular suites but sometimes, the formatting will not match exactly what is expected, especially with DOCX and XLXS files when special components such as macros are involved. Because it uses Java to be cross-platform, it can feel slower than other alternatives and it doesn't look as well integrated as native applications for that reason. It can be tedious to design flowcharts with LibreOffice Draw because aligning elements between each other and resizing them is not always as intuitive as it could be. Opening PPTX (PowerPoint) presentations with LibreOffice Impress sometimes causes notorious lags and display errors with multimedia files. There are non-obvious workarounds, but this can be an issue when receiving presentations that are designed for other pieces of software.

A free, safe and reliable office automation, a revelation.

Kommentare: For any entrepreneur, the costs of the programs are usually a limitation, as an independent worker it is vital for me to have advanced programs and high professional skills, in order to offer my clients a quality service, so I have achieved with LibreOffice, find a faithful ally to all the work I must do, from processing reports for a service request, to developing all the presentations that my clients require to know the capabilities of my work, it is thanks to LibreOffice that I have managed to save the money that other commercial options they ask for the same capabilities that I get with LibreOffice, at the cost of a donation to your project if it is to my liking, or I download it and later with the payments of my clients I can finance this wonderful experience.

Vorteile: One of the things I like most about LibreOffice, is that it allows you to use any of its programs just by downloading it, it's great to have free software available for your equipment, whatever your operating system, it's precisely that mobility and adaptability of your platform, which has led her to always include them in the list of programs that I must download once I format the computer. The saving of money is abysmal, you can install as many times as you want in as many teams as you like, and after so many years of constant work of its developers, it is possible to have versions adapted to the languages of your region. There are no limitations to use it, in addition you have everything that private office sells you completely free, you have word processor, calculations, presentations and much more, do not hesitate to use it today.

Nachteile: For iOS its interface has reached beautiful levels, and little by little they have brought that high quality feeling to their other platforms, that is why I can not negatively qualify any of its components because LibreOffice itself is a true revelation.

Vorteile: - For those who do not know, is the competence of Microsoft Office, open source and I can say with complete certainty that it is very good and can perform almost all the same, if we are casual non-advanced users.
- It is easy to install, intuitive and easy to use, it is multiplatform, it comes in different languages, it has a portable version that can be carried on a pendrive.
- Currently I use the version Version: 5.0.1.2 and although it is free, I do not have the freedom to update it in the pc of my work.
- A great advantage of LibreOffice package tools over your competition, is that I can export to PDF or HTML without installing anything additional, as it is included in your menu.
- It is important to familiarize yourself with the format in which the documents are stored as it can be confusing when sharing with another person, usually sent in .odt or in the case of Cal I send it .ods and if by chance they tell me that they can not open it, because what I do is recommend that you download LibreOffice before converting it.
- You can make tables, insert images, graphics, make macros, bring templates by default for trades, communications, cards, curriculum, all tools are compatible among themselves, from my point of view has greater variety in fonts.
- If you want to start in the world of free software, the first step is to install LibreOffice.

Nachteile: LibreOffice allows you to open a .doc, an .xls, but it is possible that something will move or something will be unraveled at the design level, the content will be there but something can be distorted. Cal has its limitations in terms of macros, the number of columns, has few styles of graphics compared to Excel. The documents in LibreOffice seem to be slower to open.

Kommentare: I've used LIbreOffice since its beginning in 2011 and prior to that I used OpenOffice. LibreOffice is, for me, a superior alternative to MS Word as I have no concerns about vendor lock-in.

Vorteile: LibreOffice is very intuitive because it is based on rather traditional menu structures that make it easy for users to find features. It offers most of the features that MS Word offers, and most of the time implements them in an easier to understand fashion. LibreOffice can import documents from MS Word and does so usually flawlessly. To avoid compatibility problems with MS Word, I advise using .odt format to create and edit your documents and only convert to .docx when necessary to send a copy to someone who uses MS Word. This will avoid most corruption problems. LibreOffice is available in portable format. You can run it from a USB flash drive on any computer. This was extremely convenient for me when travelling and doing research- I could use any convenient computer and run my own complement of portable-apps including LibreOffice. LibreOffice appears to be very efficiently coded- check out the size of the installation code (around 200mb) compared to MS Office 2013 (nearly 800bm). The Document Foundation, which supports the development of LibreOffice, is dedicated to open standards to avoid proprietary vendor lock-in. The software is free to download and use- this is essential for grad students working on a budget. Open source software helps ensure that people have access to excellent software tools irrespective of their capability to pay.

Nachteile: Sometimes it cannot import MS Word documents that have special formatting.
It's more difficult to find quick solutions to formatting complex documents. It appears that the majority of professional instructional materials focuses on using MS Word.

I have been using LibreOffice since 2010, and OpenOffice since 2003. Excellent.

Vorteile: LibreOffice forked from OpenOffice in 2010 and has since become the premier open source office suite. It has many pros:
-- open source license and thus is free. Most importantly, it is created by a community of developers who believe good quality software should be available to everyone, not just those who can afford it. Most of the world's population cannot afford a license of MS Word, nor do they have access to the internet. Open source software ensures that disadvantaged populations have better access to good software. Additionally, the open standards used by LibreOffice ensure that user's data will remain accessible and not locked into a proprietary format from which it cannot be extracted.
- standard menu. LibreOffice has smartly chosen to continue using standard menus rather than "ribbon menus" which many people find confusing because they change based on the task being performed. Few studies have proven that ribbon menus offer any productivity advantage whatsoever. - easy to use. All of the features of LibreOffice are quite easy to use and plenty of third-party documentation and tutorials exist online. - rapid development. New versions of LibreOffice are released every six months. - LibreOffice has plugins for use with Zotero, an open source reference manager. This makes it an indepsensibe tool for university students and researchers.

Nachteile: - because it is under rapid development, the "FRESH" releases of LibreOffice sometimes crash. The "STABLE" version is, well, more stable, but I've still had it crash or freeze on me, although its unusual and no more often than MS Word crashes. - While LibreOffice can open and create MS Word documents, sometimes the formatting is not exactly the same.

Kommentare: One of the most important business problems that I have seen my company resolve by using Libre Office is that we are able to utilize Libre Office at the fullest capabilities and resolve customer tickets much faster; because before it was time consuming to copy the file from the server and paste them in my local PC and then open them via excel, but with Libre Office is FREE to use and downloading the application is simple and fast. I would recommend other users who have not used Libre Office to use it before purchasing other competitor Office applications such s MS office which is pricy.

Vorteile: Libre Office is free to use on any platform of PC, what I like about Libre Office is that it consist of the 4 major applications that MS Office would charge a fortune in this day in age; Libre Office has word, powerpoint, excel, and Access; In Libre Office the application naming is different they had it at Writer, Calc, Imporess, Base for data base; even though the naming of the application is different compared to MS office or Google Applications, Libre Office has the same features as you would for writing a document, making a powerpoint, creating excel sheets, and developing a database; same features but FREE. Libre Office makes it easy to use and there is no need to learn tutorials on how to use Libre Office because I have seen the same generic icons across other applications. I am using Libre Office in my day to day activities for work purposes as well as to open and view client docs and financials and etc. our systems team has installed Libre Office in our servers so we can easily open and view documents mostly excel docs.

Nachteile: I have not had any issues using Libre Office

Vorteile: This document editing app is simply the best i have ever used. i came across this application as an alternative to the mainstream software when i decided to try Linux and since then i have never gone back. The software is lightweight, easy to use, feature rich, a plethora of helpful options and most of all, it is free.
Open source; this software as against the other popular options does not make its users wait a very long time for updates and the regular updates that comes to this software is as a result of how other people with software development knowledge can add features they thought are missing and on and on it goes until the software gets to the very top on the chart of document editing softwares.
Spell check integration; what makes writing fun on the libre office is not only the fonts and the many options that aids productivity but also the spell check integration and the uniqueness of this spell checker is the fact that it is not only limited to the writer app, it can be judiciously used in every of the softwares embedded in the libreoffice suite.
Cross platform support; finding out that libreoffice is not only limited to the linux operating system heightened my interest even more as having it on the windows platform and on macos means i can do away with the paid alternative i had been putting up with for years now.

Nachteile: is there something i don't like about this software? The answer is no, i love every bit of it as it handles all the task i throw at it as a writer.

Kommentare: This is great software free of cost. It supports different types of Document, Spreadsheet files, Presentation files etc. We can easily open files created in another office suite like Microsoft, OpenOffice or any other thus makes our life easy. My overall experience with this software is good.

Vorteile: LibreOffice is one of the best application in Office Management Space. I have been used Office Management applications since a long. Many applications are either very costly but rich on feature side or few are free but features not available. Since LibreOffice is also Opensource application but overall product feature and performance wise is wonderful. The main thing that it is inoperable means i can use it on Windows/ Linux easily and its installation is also very much smooth. I liked this complete suite as it fulfills almost 80%-90% of my daily requirements. My overall team use this software and it makes easy for them also to create documents and Spreadsheets. Its spreadsheet also supports formula which was available in other office software

Nachteile: The overall its user interface can be improved as per modern requirements. It does not have email client which is also required for day to day organize emails and efficiently communicate with clients and partners. Many formulas which was created in Microsoft excel sheet are not supported in this application which we have to handle separately.

Kommentare: I'm a consultant with nonprofits and work with clients all over the world, most using Microsoft products. We've been able to work together, sharing files and editing each other's work, very easily. Sharing files is a substantial part of my work, so it's essential I have a reliable tool.

Vorteile: What I love about this software is that it's free and of high quality. It looks and feels like any word processing, slide show presentation or spreadsheet software, including Microsoft's office products. It does everything I want it to do in terms of producing documents, creating presentations and crunching numbers. I can open old files created in other programs relatively easily, and I can save my material as a Microsoft file, which my clients usually prefer.

Nachteile: The support documentation is lacking, and the support forums often aren't helpful to those of us who are not software programmers and coders. I'm an end-user and need help focused on someone that is simply using the software for everyday office tasks - but often, I cannot figure out how to find that help. Also, saving a file as a Microsoft file often affects the layout - not in a good way. There also seems to be some accessibility issues - I created files for a client who told me this, but she couldn't easily explain what the problem was.

Kommentare: I use LibreOffice's word processor to draft documents and reports. And I use the spreadsheet software to manage my sales and inventory. In general, it's one of the first pieces software I install on all of my computers.

Vorteile: LibreOffice is free and comes with all the standard office applications you'll need.

Nachteile: Some of the menus are hidden at first until you configure them, compared to OpenOffice which has them available by default. Also incorporating a database in to your spreadsheets has a learning curve.

Kommentare: I use LibreOffice in my business and for personal use, in fact I encourage my friends and family to install and use the program. It does everything MS Office does and more and is easy to use. In my opinion its the Best free alternative to MS Office and I don't miss a thing.

Vorteile: I"m always using LibreOffice on my desktop, its a suitable and free alternative for Microsoft Office. The things I love about LibreOffice is it ability to use plugins aka extensions that enhances its functionality. There are language and translation extensions, Dictionary extensions, Clip Arts extensions, Templates for calender, formating etc. LibreOffice also has features which allow the user to export documents in multiple format e.g. PDF and even .doc plus its own format which is .odt LibreOffice also opens documents of other formats such as .doc, .xls. Basically anything from Microsoft Office The Interface is very similar to that of Microsoft Office so in my opinion there is no learning curve. In fact I remember once working in Calc where I was plugging away and forgot I wasn't using Excel I can do everything in LibreOffice that I would do in Microsoft Office and more and remember LibreOffice Is free Through the use of an extension I can save documents in multiple formats I can save my documents on Google Drive and this is a built in feature LibreOffice takes much less space on my hard drive than that popular commercial word processing software

Nachteile: There is nothing about LibreOffice that I dislike

Kommentare: To get LibreOffice at no cost is amazing. At work we suggest Libre Office to all our customers if they want a way to read, edit or create office documents. When customers buy a new computer and they are on a budget Libre Office is the only way to go.

Vorteile: I love that I can open other documents from other software companies with LibreOffice without having to pay an arm and a leg. The spreadsheet program is just as easy to use as excel. The appearance is a bit different but as with any software I got familiar with it and now I don't have to think about it. I was able to use the spreadsheet program when exporting names and address from one program to another and it worked perfectly.

Nachteile: So far I have not found a least. I like it so much I use it at work and home.

Kommentare: LibreOffice is a powerful office type application that has modern and fully featured tools. Best thing is it is an open and free software for anyone also who aren't rich for buy a software. LibreOffice works with most operating systems such as Windows,Mac,Linux etc. There are many apps in this that we need in file editing like Writer(text formatting),Calc(data analysing),Impress(presentation),Draw(painting) and such other apps. So we can edit texts with many features,easily analysing data and presentations with media rich contents and and others.When we documenting files there is a feature named automatic spell check that corrects our typing words. So we don't have worry about some mistakes.Calc is really easy to understand and work with it.There are so many styles and tools for presentations in Impress.So many tools to work with Draw to design graphics. Because of these tools we can edit our office files completely and professional.Also there are some problems regarding LibreOffice.Sometimes some file types doesn't match with this application,so documents get confused.And also I think that still the user interface not match with modern office types.It should be developed.With these modifications LibreOffice becomes a good office application.I highly recommend LibreOffice for document purposes.

Vorteile: Free and open software.
Working with most operating systems(Windows,Mac,Linux).
Impeccable documents with automatic spell check.
Support for many file types (doc,ppt,xlsx,etc.).
Easy to use and have multiple features.

Nachteile: User interface still not applicable with modern type.
Sometimes some file types not adjusting with LibreOffice(spreadsheet docs,Impress presentation files,etc.)

One of the best text editor...

Kommentare: t is a free and affordable program. Use to solve just about any problem and write all the college assignments I need. It's practical, intuitive, essential features for those who need to save time with a busy schedule. Any other program can easily read your files without problems, it is extremely compatible with other platforms.

Vorteile: I use the tool practically every day. Extremely practical and intuitive, it sets up the best text editor I know and have ever used. Its navigation bar is always well distributed throughout updates, and its features are always optimized. And to top it all off, we still have the powerful text recovery tool for unexpected incidents, always avoiding major inconveniences. Here we have the definitive tool for making, editing and creating text. I recommend!

Nachteile: Sometimes it happens that the program crashes. It is not a usual and recurring problem, but it can happen. Also, depending on the size of the document, it may take a long time to execute and sometimes crash during the process. Any program functionality that requires more processing, if the machine is not ready, you may experience problems.

Kommentare: Not only do you benefit from the initial cost of the program (as opposed to MS Office) you also benefit due to free updates. Sharing LibreOffice documents of all types with Microsoft users has proven to be flawless, with few or any very minor compatibility issues.

Vorteile: LibreOffice is a great alternative to costly Microsoft Office suite. It is compatible with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents and is completely free. It utilizes a standard toolbar as opposed to the "ribbon" used by current Microsoft products, which may make it easier for some users to adapt. In addition, the Linux version of LibreOffice is the finest office suite available for Linux users. Ability to export files to .pdf format is a big plus.

Nachteile: While the default file formats are fine, if you are sharing documents with Microsoft users you will need to either use the "save as" option to change the default format, or change the program's defaults to those of Microsoft products, i.e. .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, etc. Also, the product does not contain any built in clip-art, but such clip-art is readily available elsewhere.

Kommentare: I like that the LibreOffice software supports several other document types. In particular, an accessible document format called OpenDocument Format or ODF, PowerPoint, Excel, Word, and Publisher formats. The FOSS package is constructed on the foundation of OpenOffice technology, which makes it an efficient heir to the obsolete Open Source Office platform.

Vorteile: LibreOffice is a robust set of office automation applications that aim to unleash a creative and productivity-driven environment for charitable organizations, homes, companies, and public sector agencies worldwide. And at the end of the day, the office-based suite also delivers a comprehensive portfolio of plug-ins. Furthermore, it offers some layouts that empower end-users to improve the performance of their workflow and generate more documents more swiftly and wisely.

Nachteile: The user interface can be a little confusing at some points in time. At the same time, it only takes a bit of effort for one to familiarize themselves with the UI.

Kommentare: When you need to import or export data tables with geographic attributes, they are required to be in specific formats, so that they can be used in Geographic Information Systems, such as the .csv format. Since the release of Microsofts 2007 suite, those formats were no longer present. Therefore the use of LibreOffice, allowed to fulfill my work, even optimize it.

Vorteile: I have worked in a free software environment and I have tried other similar LibreOffice options, and the latter is the one I liked the most. It is very comfortable and easy to use, you do not need training to start working with that. It has some qualities that are distinguished: You can work on Linux, Windows and Mac; is free; It occupies little space on the disk and is easy to install. It is functional, works in various extensions, including some that no longer come in private software, but are widely used in special programs such as cartography and geography.

Nachteile: There is something that I do not like free software in general and that LibreOffice does not escape, it is the technical support assisted by the community that uses it and develops it. Generally, if you have any concerns you should go to the forum, and sometimes these forums can be overwhelming.

Pleasantly interesting

Kommentare: You save money, a similar proprietary software can cost you more than per license, but LibreOffice can be your office computer support just by downloading the program. You can use it on computers with few resources, which allows you to avoid investing more resources in a hardware. Another benefit is the number of formats that you can read and export, you can go from a pdf to a .doc, it adapts very well to the price and function ratio. I have no major complaints.

Vorteile: That's the good thing about free software, that you can find packages like Libre Office with a lot of potential and completely free. If your computer does not have large resources, or you can not pay a private license, this software is for you, you have the whole package. If you have knowledge in traditional office automation, you will not have any problems.

Nachteile: The interface could be more attractive, I know they have devoted a lot, and it is not fair to describe something wrong with this computer proposal, but I want it to improve because it offers everything without a large payment except a donation. If they make those small changes they could attract more users who stop using private office automation. Another aspect that I recommend to change, is the language, if a person wishes to use Libre Office in Spanish he must install an additional pack, for that reason, it is preferable to do a multi-language installation, and that the user with few clicks decides the language of his preference.

Great Office Alternative

Vorteile: I love that this powerful software is free. I am not a fan of Software As a Service which keeps you paying every month forever or having to buy extremely expensive software. Libreoffice is free though you can and should donate something toward continued development and it is more than enough for most small business use. I use the spreadsheet app the most to track my business expenses and inventory. It does all the calculations and charts I need to stay on top of my business and satisfy my accountant. The document app also gets used a lot for my business correspondence, book writing, notes, etc. Both apps allow me to easily format my input anyway I want to make both functional yet eye pleasing documents. I also like how it handles PDFs.

Nachteile: It is not Office so don't expect it to do everything just like it. It doesn't hook into other software, a fancy spreadsheet will look a little different, etc. but it does so much that it is a suitable replacement.

Kommentare: Libreoffice bring me the possibility to do create my documents and presentations without any worry about licenses or payment, this is the best option for people who cannot afford the payment of a private software.

Vorteile: The possibility to use all the office software for free is the best feature of Libreoffice, this software brings all you need, word processor, presentation creator, sheets manager, pdf creator and so many other features, all this for free. The tools of this software are so similar and powerfull as MS Office are, you can create documents, presentations and work with data in a very easy way.

Nachteile: There are a lot of incompatibility between Libreoffice and MS Office and this can be a great limitation, because the most of people uses MS Office and sometimes when you share and document created in Libreoffice with someones who uses another software this can be a little corrupted or do not adjust perfectly to the other software, creating a problem for people who works with other application for presentations and documents.

An alternative to Microsoft Office. Only not as a easy to use.

Kommentare: My office was looking to save money and reduce our needs of using Microsoft Office. LibreOffice was an alternative. In a few days, my coworkers would send me blank documents that 'looked fine' on their screen. I had bug reports from some team members about screen tearing, and my team struggled with knowing were certain options were.

Vorteile: It's free and fully functional as a text editor.

Nachteile: It's buggy. Things that look great in Google Docs or Microsoft Office will break here.
There's also an issue where content will mysteriously change or warp. This is a problem in Microsoft Office as well, where you press Enter and suddenly, your copy breaks/images disappear/page jumps. But it happens more frequently in LibreOffice.
Finally, when scrolling, sometimes text will leave a shadow - so the screen doesn't refresh correctly. This is 2019, and text software has been the same for a long time. There's absolutely no reason why this should happen.

Kommentare: Ultimately LibreOffice is a fantastic solution for a non-cloud, productivity suite. It gives you the ability to open and create documents in a ton of formats, and it's open source. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who doesn't want or can't spend on MS Office, and needs an application that can reliably be used while offline.

Vorteile: LibreOffice was my daily driver for productivity for several years. It's open-source which gives me a lot of confidence that the code is safe and doesn't come with a bunch of telemetry baked in. There were very few things I had trouble doing in LibreOffice once I figured out where everything is in the interface. Great compatibility with a variety of file formats. It's fantastic that software like this exists.

Nachteile: The only real downsides to LibreOffice are the user interface which is somewhat less intuitive if you're used to using MS Office applications. It takes some exploration and patience to find some of the functionality. I've also noticed that LibreOffice tends to take longer to load than Office does. I haven't done any investigation into templates for use in LibreOffice, but I've also found that it's marginally easier to make nicer-looking documents using Office or Google Docs, however I think spending some time customizing document formatting rather than using the out-of-the-box styles would probaby fix this issue.
