LibreOffice Office Suite

libre-officeLibreOffice is a free and open source office suite, developed by The Document Foundation. It was forked from in 2010, which was an open-sourced version of the earlier StarOffice. The LibreOffice suite comprises programs for word processing, the creation and editing of spreadsheets, slideshows, diagrams and drawings, working with databases, and composing mathematical formulae. LibreOffice uses the international ISO/IEC standard OpenDocument file format. The OpenDocument file format is now also supported by all major competing office suite applications (proprietary and open source). LibreOffice is also compatible with other major office suites, including Microsoft Office, through a variety of import/export filters. The file formats of Microsoft Office are well supported, though some layout features and formatting attributes are handled differently in the application or are not entirely supported in the filters. LibreOffice is available in 110 languages and for a variety of computing platforms, including Microsoft Windows, OS X (10.8 or newer), and Linux (including a LibreOffice Viewer for Android). It is the default office suite of most popular Linux distributions.
