    Hi, I was looking into an open-source office suite (because M$ keeps trying to shove OneDrive down our throats even if we dont want it) and was wondering which one to go with. I have used OpenOffice in the past and it worked well enough, but that was back when Sun was just Sun.

    I been looking into LibreOffice and it seems the best choice right now, but I might be overlooking other alternatives. What's your guys opinion? Which is better Libre, Open or some other?

    LibreOffice is very good, and does function well.

    Second vote for LibreOffice if you're looking for an Office alternative. Version 5 is particularly nice-looking.

    In Linux LibreOffice works pretty well. So it has a vote from me as well.

    It works just as well under Windows, having used both versions.

    I've used it for basics in the past on borrowed machines and review units and it worked perfectly fine as a free solution. Does anyone know if it does pivot tables as well as Excel, or at all? I've have never checked and use pivot tables daily at work for data analysis. I'm getting sick of supporting Micro$loth's greed and incompetence and after Windoze OS X turned out to be such an abortion it would be nice to abandon Office if this will do what I need it to with pivot tables.

    Hmm... I need to get out more often. Haven't heard of this one. Same question on pivots, if you know.
