LibreOffice: An Alternative to Microsoft Office
LibreOffice is a replacement for Microsoft Office. Microsoft Office costs a bomb and, hence, most users go for a pirated version which may not be complete and may have gaping security holes which can be exploited. 
 
LibreOffice is the most powerful free and open source office suite in the market. They have all the popular tools like Word, Excel and PowerPoint in LibreOffice. Besides, you also have drawing tools, math formulas and databases which make the office suite complete.  It is totally free to use and you get a public licence to operate it. Plus, you also get online updates, from time to time, which enhance its security. Most Microsoft Office documents can be opened and saved by LibreOffice, so compatibility is no longer an issue. The software is extremely light and easy to use with the most popular menus incorporated in the user interface. Now is the time to switch to LibreOffice and work efficiently, virus-free and legal! Just visit www.libreoffice.org and download it for immediate use.

Have been trying Libra Office, think it's French as had seen a photograph of their team. It's quoite nice and helping them will make replacement easier. All they need are a few extra features like insertions and watermarks. But then that is what I miss. Others may know more. But it is definitely worth a try. Go to the Majorgeeks.com site. Will find other office suits also. There is Chinese suite w-.... but it is shareware after a time. MajorGeeks.Com » Files » Categories » Office Tools » Microsoft Office & Alternatives . Try it. I like Apache too.

Dear Bapoo,

LibreOffice is managed by The Document Foundation based in Germany, but it is definitely an international project.
It does have insertion and watermark and much more. You can have a look at this book freely available for a more comprehensive introduction to LO: http://designingwithlibreoffice.com

I have been using LibreOffice since it was released. Actually, been a loyal user of OpenOffice.org and Sun StarOffice before that since I did not want to use pirated MS Office... LibreOffice has come a long way from the buggy StarOffice and is a fine piece of software.

Big user & supporter of LibreOffice.

I am definitely a strong supporter of LibreOffice. Still, I believe we should avoid such kind of apologetic article about the free and open source office suite. Indeed, LibreOffice is a very interesting alternative to Microsoft Office, but it does has some limitations, including compatibility with complex MS Excel files for example. Pretending it is just perfect results with disillusion. But really: do try it if you do not know it!
