What alternatives to Microsoft Office exist?
Novell Cool Solutions: Question & Answer
I don't want to use MS Office anymore. Is that possible? Are there open-source (or closed source, for that matter) alternatives to Microsft Office?
Yes. Glad you asked.
There are a few, actually.
- The best and most well-known is OpenOffice. It provides the whole office suite.
- Another good one is KOffice. It's KDE's answer to MS Office.
- Abiword is a good word processor
- Gnumeric is a fantastic spreadsheet program.
OpenOffice usually is pre-installed on SUSE and Novell Linux Desktop by default.
