Download LibreOffice: a spin-off of the free office suite OpenOffice, complete with word processing, spreadsheets, presentations and drawing programmes.
LibreOffice is the result of independent continuation of OpenOffice. The Document Foundation, which was founded from the OpenOffice.org community, takes a further step in the direction of independence.
The free LibreOffice provides everything that an office suite needs. From word processing to spreadsheets to presentation development, all categories are covered. In addition to many other formats, Microsoft formats such as DOC and DOCX are also supported.
In Version 4, if you own a touch screen monitor or a Windows tablet, you can assign coloured notes to Writer Documents by drawing with your finger. There are a range of other small changes, for example, you can now use different headers and footers on the first page of documents.
Verdict: It's good that LibreOffice - which sees itself as the future of the OpenOffice Project - has now appeared in its final version. The open source office suite now feels polished and well-made.
