Windows Office improvements

The leading open-source office software suite


Free, and with a huge array of tools

Available in over 100 languages


Not many templates

OpenOffice is probably the world’s most popular open-source office software suite. This multi-platform productivity suite is completely free, unlike Microsoft Office 365 (which rings in at around $100 USD/year). If you’re looking for a free and effective alternative to Microsoft Office, you’ve found it here. OpenOffice will help improve productivity, solve office tasking issues, and has great alternatives to Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Access, and more

Which programs does it include?

OpenOffice features an array of programs covering just about each and every one of your office needs: Writer, a word processor suitable for producing from basic to professional documents; Calc for creating powerful spreadsheets and graphing; Impress for effective multimedia presentations; Draw for simple to dynamic 3D illustrations; Base for all things databases; and Math, for solving all of your mathematical equations.

How easy is it to use?

Very. OpenOffice has an intuitive design and is similar to Microsoft Office, so if you’re already familiar with Word, Excel and Powerpoint, you shouldn’t have any problems using OpenOffice. It’s also compatible with just about any document you wish to open and work on, and supports the same file formats as rival programs like Word and Excel.

OpenOffice also includes a series of extension that you can install to personalize your experience even more. From translators, to formatting templates, puzzle makers, and more - there are hundreds of great options.
