LibreOffice / OpenOffice

In the past I have informed people of the existence of free office software that fulfils most people's needs.

At the time, the software was called - a bit of a strange name with the ".org" at the end, but still, easy to find and remember.

What people may not know is that a few years ago the project split - most developers went to a new project called , whiile the official name and a few of the developers went to create a new project called Apache Open Office.

Apache Open Office is the official successor to the original It is also dead.

Anyone using Open Office should migrate to , which has had many improvements over the older Open Office.

Coincidentally, LibreOffice has released version 5 recently. For anyone looking for free prodictivity software and doesn't want to fork out for Microsoft Office, sould be a serious consideration.
