That’s the conclusion of an analysis of Linux for Devices in which they evaluated both office suites and have compared the latest versions presented by The Document Foundation and Oracle respectively.
As you know, LibreOffice appeared as a clone of OpenOffice.org attitude after learning of the Oracle at the Open Source in general and OpenOffice.org in particular. Many of the current distributions have supported the development of LibreOffice and have joined their evolution, while OpenOffice.org is out, unfortunately, a very bad reputation for the future of the project,
That reputation could also be further compromised by the actual payment of the two suites, is that as indicated in the original article there are several features of LibreOffice 3.3 that already show the potential of this fork in front of the original suite .
For example, in LibreOffice we import the same type of files from OpenOffice.org, but also can work with documents imported from Lotus WordPro and MS Work , plus improved import filters for WordPerfect files.
Other formats supported or whose compatibility has been improved compared to OpenOffice.org 3.3 are the SVG import in Draw and Writer, or PPTX file (PowerPoint 2007/2010) for the tool Presentation of LibreOffice. The same applies to XSLT and ODF documents that can be loaded and saved into an XML flat format for faster processing.
Another improvement is the new dialog box for the option “Save as …” , which only shows the appropriate document formats, but that does not stop the user if they really want to save in other formats.
people curious may also discuss some of the experimental performance LibreOffice 3.3-not any specific details, but if any, as witches, Hayles.
All this makes
LibreOffice 3.3 A first version of this office suite which apparently is beginning to win the game to their own “mother.” And we hope to continue doing , especially for the good of Open Source and its philosophy.
