A reader has a question about two excellent, free Office Suites?
“Can you please advise whether Libre Office or Open Office is better? Which is your favorite?”
Actually, my favorite office suite is Microsoft Office and I have the receipts for my Microsoft 365 subscription to prove it. But I’m the first to admit it’s really just a matter of preference. I’ve used Microsoft Office, LibreOffice, OpenOffice, and even Google Docs. I happen to like Microsoft Office best but all of these office suites were functional and let me complete the tasks that needed to get done.
My preference for Microsoft’s suite is more tied to its connectivity to my preferred cloud storage provider, OneDrive.
Between LibreOffice and OpenOffice, I probably like LibreOffice best. Though I’m not sure I can tell you exactly why. The great thing about both office suites being free is that you can download them both to test drive with no expense and no risk. See which interface you prefer.
I will put it out as a question to our readers, though. Between LibreOffice and OpenOffice which is your favorite and why? Let us know in the comments.
