    Having problems with ApacheOpenOffice . So far I have not been able to use OpenOffice. I need single spacing when writing, so click in "single", but it still gives me double spacing, and up in the left corner it says "default". Either I do not know how to use the website, or the website is malfunctioning. Also to participate in their forum they ask for a digitalMore

    Collatebox the best alternative to google spreadsheets. OpenOffice is pretty decent, but I think CollateBox is a better tool. Pros: online collaboration. Cons: nothing

    No dictionary = useless (from Source Forge). No dictionary = useless. and very sad: I loved earlier versions. Open office 4.0.1 and 4.0.0 downloaded without dictionaries, so the program registers all words as misspelled. to correct this, I have followed the directions on the web, and have downloaded the dictionary, but cannot get it into the open office extensions. I also cannot ask a question on More

    Poor installation process. I do not recomment this program. . I tried to install this program. The installation process was full of advertisements and offers for other programs. I declined them all, as I have no use for them. When my installation was finished a new window popped up asking me to install it again, only this time it was in french. I Declined and I am trying to uninstall this program More

    I would recommend OpenOffice to anybody.. OpenOffice is the perfect alternative to both MS Office and MS Works. It gives me everything I need and then some. And making document transfers is a little tedious. However patience is a virtue. I would recommend OpenOffice to anybody

    Apache Openoffice. Every time I try and open a document it asks me to recover it. No help on forums unless you are a PC geek. Will try and revert back to previous version. Pros: None whatsover. Cons: Surely they must have trialled this version in house before sending out to the unsuspecting world

    JRE 7u5 does not work with OO 3.4 on Win XP. Have used Oo since 1.0 - very successfully. After upgrading OOo 3.3 to AOo 3.4, with the latest JRE installed for my internet browser to work (and because it's recommeded for safety), AOo 3.4 refused to work with Java JRE 7u5. My only solution, install latest previous JRE and make AOo run with that only (Java Setup Options). Libre Office 3.0 also does More

    Disaster. I have used OO3.3 for many months with great suuccess. I updated to 3.4 and from then on I have hadnothing but trouble with spreadsheets closing and jumping to recovery mode. Looks to me that 3.4 is a great reason to revert to Ms Offfice products!!!

    Please help. Product worked for me better in 3.0 version; get error message all the time. PropResDLL not loaded. Can't print anything off of attachments. I have written through the website too many times with no response. Anybody have any ideas? Cons: See above.

    Vista Stories: OpenOffice.org. Excellent free office suite, even translated into 27 languages. In his new release brings a handful of possibilities. If you do not have money for Microsoft Office, this is suggested as the best alternative, even it is free!

    Good Free Microsft Office Alternative But Messy Installation. OpenOffice.org would be the best Free Microsoft Office alternative if they would clean up the installer and stop forcing an installation folder on the desktop. If you move or remove the installation folder then you can't upgrade to a newer version and either have to reformat your PC or clean out all the folders, files and registry keys More

    2010 outdoor. Screenshots from Windows XP. Hey, 2010 on the street! Appearance of the program has not changed for 10 years. Hey, 2010 on the street! Even if OpenOffice is good in terms of functionality, it does not override its ugly retardation. Pros: Functionality. Cons: Interface

  • by Anonymous

    It is somewhere around middle. I think it is a good program. I had tried to use it for a few days before I switched to IBM lotus symphony.It is user friendly but its appearence seems to look like that of microsoft office 2000. But I would recommend it over microsoft works. Pros: It is user friendly It works like any other office suites. Cons: It does not have good appearance It is no so cool

    Compatibility still problematic. If you need truly free office suite for any use (even commercial), yes, OpenOffice is the best. But... difference in fonts brings trouble (pages, layout, spacing goes awry), support for Office 2007 formats still partial (SmartArt, Picture Effects, VBA, still unsupported). The problem is if you're dealing with customers or people who already have Office 2007, and uMore

    Better than Microsoft Office. While not as popular, i think it is better. It has a fancier appearance and has many more tools that are actually rather useful. It is also easy-to-use. The biggest difference between MO and OO are the fonts used. I would say Open Office has many more fonts to choose from. Pros: Everyday use Lots of different tools Free Better than Microsoft Office Easy-to-use. CMore

    This is great software. Maybe a little different to MS office as far as layout. Also, have a look at Kingsoft Office 2007 from www.kingsoftresearch.com. Pros: Great application. Cons: Takes a little getting used to

    The door is open, just walk through. Right off the bat, for a freeware solution, OpenOffice is amazingly comprehensive offering you all the features that you might expect to find in the paid equivalent, MS Office. Let me just say, that if you rely more on Word than any of the other Office tools, then you will find Writer a more than worthy replacement, but if your area of expertise is Excel, then More
