Features, Office "The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.0, the free office suite the community has been dreaming of since 2001. LibreOffice 4.0 is the first release that reflects the objectives set by the community at the time of the announcement, in September 2010: a cleaner and leaner code base, an improved set of features, better interoperability, and a more diverse and inclusive ecosystem."

Member since:

1. It works the same in both Windows in Linux (so both me and my Windows-using co-workers can use it).
2. Its free (as in speech).
3. It does 100% of all things I need. (Most likely 200%)
4. It works just fine on my 8 year old laptop (running F18/i686).
5. It has a simple and predicable interface (God I hate the ribbon interface).
6. It has zero issues with BIDI + English in the same sentence. (For some absurd reasons Office 2K10 spell checker really dislike complex sentences).
7. In most cases, I can cooperate with Office 2K7/10 users without issues (mostly @work).
8. Unlike OO, I can see measurable improvement between each release.
9. Unlike MSO, I can actually report bugs (whenever I see one) and have some type of dialog with the developer as opposed to shaking my fist against the sky and cursing.
10. Being free, I don't have to pay 10 times the price just to avoid getting a limited "Home" edition.
