Features, Office LibreOffice is the provisional name of a community-led fork of OpenOffice that is to be developed under the umbrella of a European based non-profit to be named The Document Foundation. This should break OpenOffice free from the shackles of Sun/Oracle, hopefully leading to a faster and more inclusive development cycle.

Damn straight. I had only toyed with OpenOffice until MS Office 2007 came out, with that asinine, Bill-knows-whats-best-for-you "ribbon" interface. It pissed me off so badly that I tried OO again and have not had a need to run the MS version in a VM or under Wine at all since.

I've even used OO to fix corruption in MS Office files that the Office 2003 we have at work introduced (I keep the portable version on a fast USB stick solely for that purpose).
