  • OpenOffice vs Libreoffice

    Hi friends :wink:

    I've been using OpenOffice for a couple of years now...

    A few days ago I read about LibreOffice which was created by old members of OpenOffice organization... it is a fork in the name of freedom.

    hmmm, which organization do I follow ? their products are so similar...:roll:

    Is any member able to tell me more ?

    Best regard

    Hi titou
    I would take it easy for awhile, - the product is still in beta.
    There seems to be some improvement, most notably as I see it in the macro-writing department - why OO haven't done that long ago I don't understand.
    Excel has a problem with dates that stems from a mistake written into the program originally - someone apparently at that time thought that the year 1900 was a leap year, and instead of rewriting the code they have tried to mend it, - explanation given that they wanted it to be compatible with earlier wrong versions.?
    This dating problem is non-existent in OO and LO (Libre Office)
    I am still wondering why a splinter group wanted to create a similar product, any differences they should have been able to hammer out - me thinks.
    Ego-clashes???
    The difference in commands language-wise ought to be handled differently in all the products I think.
    Always saved and sent as English commands - and then "translated" into the recipient's language.
    They ought to be able to automate this process - and have a list that translates the commands in Help.
    Cheers

        Libreoffice

        Hi friends :wink:

        I finaly decided to follow the Libreoffice document foundation software... the most part of the team of development made it !

        http://www.libreoffice.org/

        It is compatibility domain that evolutions are the most notable. The developers sided to spread the support of software bureautique with OpenXML, promoted by Microsoft. It introduces advantage to ameliorate import and export of existent documents of Microsoft Service (2007), nowadays norm in firm. But OpenXML is not the only one, LibreOffice 3.3 can also work PDF, Lotus Word Pro, Works Microsoft and WordPerfect.

        What office suite are you used to work with ?

        Best regards

          pparently LibreOffice is the continuation of OpenOffice

          hi....friend...
          i dont know more about this topic...
          Apparently LibreOffice is the continuation of OpenOffice and will replace it in a lot of distros. They're still working on the re-branding part, but it'll be more community driven rather than Oracle driven.

              OpenOffice is dead

              Hi friends :wink:

              In a press article published on Friday, April 15th, Oracle announces that he endes the commercial version of OpenOffice.org, of which he was the main sponsor . The editor transfers the entirety of the development of office suite to the Open source community.

              So, I have done the good choice, isn't it ? :mrgreen:

                    hi enoskype and titou
                    For the time being I have both version on my machine.
                    The libre setup file is better than the OO one, especially language-wise.
                    Cheers
