    If we are doing online and non free, just use office365 or Google docs. At least your project mates won’t hate you.

    Cryptpad is not an alternative, it can’t edit odt or doc format. You can export to doc format. The is no support for odp format even export.

    Here is the list with my opinions:

    1. ONLYOFFICE (I might need to give it a try again some day)
    2. OpenOffice (should probably stop including it in repos)
    3. CryptPad (more of a Google Docs alternative)
    4. SoftMaker FreeOffice (never heard of it)
    5. WPS Office (nah, thanks)
    6. Calligra (looks good on KDE)

      onlyoffice is what i use, on linux and windows.

      i think that the libreoffice people should have re-joined openoffice once their main gripe (oracle) was out of the picture, which wasn’t long after they split-off and released their first forked version.

        The only benefit that OpenOffice had was the name. Given the momentum that LibreOffice had early on, OpenOffice should clearly have joined with them and maybe ceded the name.

        I am glad that LibreOffice did not try to merge back with OpenOffice as clearly it remains a poorly managed project. The continued existence of OpenOffice is doing tremendous damage to the wider ecosystem. The fact that Apache continues to promote the project not only reflects badly in them but show what poor stewards they are. I would not have wanted their lead ship to have hampered the subsequent success of LibreOffice. The whole episode just proves that LibreOffice was right to break away and not just because of Oracle.

          a combined openoffice project would be different than what it or libreoffice is today.

    This is the definition of clickbait, bullshit articles… they didn’t even bother to take their own screenshots of the suggested alternatives. I also don’t really know what’s the point of this article, Linux users know what’s out there and although I dislike LibreOffice and have strong thoughts about it it is vastly superior to the other alternatives suggested to the point said alternatives aren’t really alternatives.

    Also, Cryptpad? Fucks sake.
