The Best of the Free

LibreOffice is not our answer to replace Microsoft Office for our day to day business needs. However, we have a significant portion of our clientele, as well as our staff, who do not require the vast features Microsoft provides. For this subset of our population, LibreOffice is irreplaceable. It allows us to make document generation available to a much larger audience than we would be able to if we were limited to only our Microsoft licenses. Furthermore, the compatibility with Microsoft products that LibreOffice provides is a marked upgrade from prior open source office products.

Pros

LibreOffice Comes as close as possible to replicating the Microsoft Office suite of products of any of the free products we have tried. We have a limited number of licenses for Microsoft products, but we still have a need to provide our clients with Word processors and other tools so that they can correspond with their loved ones. LibreOffice provides more functionality and compatibility than any comparable product.

Cons

LibreOffice does not replace Microsoft for us. The shortcut keys and other functions that Microsoft has perfected over several decades are still superior to the ones available in LibreOffice.

Reasons for choosing LibreOffice

LibreOffice provides a more user friendly experience and also did a better job at maintaining the document format during file conversions.

LibreOffice for Linux Users

For quick edits on Word documents on Linux, LibreOffice offers everything one's needs.

Pros

Since Microsoft Office does not support Linux OS users must find an alternative. There are some sensitive documents that are not allowed to be edited online, so an offline program must be used. LibreOffice is the most complete editor for documents while working offline. It has the basic features of Word, also supports both .doc and .docx documents and runs smoothly on Unix systems.

Cons

Most advanced usage is limited by its features. It is not as easy to, since its interface is really confusing and not consistent as opposed to Microsoft Word.

Reasons for switching to LibreOffice

The switch was made on very specific cases in which it was not possible to edit documents online and they had to be edited on Linux systems.

Experience with LibreOffice

We have used it for the generation of reports, comparative graphs, evolution graphs, business presentations.

Pros

The most important feature is that the consumption of resources is lower than that of other software such as MS Office. Many of its functions are different from those of MS Office, but the result is the same and sometimes better. It allowed us to save on the licenses necessary to work.

Cons

The documentation and help that it has is not very detailed or is not well explained, having to resort to an internet search engine to find out how to do an action that was previously done in MS Office.

Reasons for choosing LibreOffice

For the price of the licenses, plus it doesn't have many features that LibreOffice does have.

Reasons for switching to LibreOffice

Because of the cost of the licenses and the similarity in the functionalities it offers.
