The dominance of Windows in Office Suites has been curbed by OpenOffice. The software is by far the most complete suite of software for work, database, and presentation creation among others.

This program can be summed up as the alternative version of Microsoft Office minus specific functions. Indeed, OpenOffice has an all-in-one suite of software each with an equivalent in the Microsoft version. If you need Microsoft Word, then Office Writer is the way to go. For a Presentation tool such as Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer 2003, OpenOffice answers with Impress. Last but not least, Office Base is the database alternative of Access.

Get the same functions for free

All the components of OpenOffice are free and have nothing at all to envy the competition. The download of additional plugins can enhance your experience in the good. Although files saved in OpenOffice have a different extension, the compatibility with Microsoft Office is unquestioned. In fact, OpenOffice files can be saved in the Microsoft Office extension. The only problem is that versions higher than Office 2003 cannot open the files.

For a software with such a wealth of features and alternative, it is surprising to know that OpenOffice is open source. Anyone with a degree of programming knowledge can improve on the assets of the software. Furthermore, OpenOffice has a community of users that collaborate on fixing bugs among others. Often, patches for the software are available to download for free.

Anyone is invited to help the project get even better over time. It will not take long before OpenOffice fast surpasses the competition as the number one name in the field.
