Alternatives to Microsoft Office

On my newest laptop I resisted the urge to purchase the Microsoft Office suite. Instead I've installed the free LibreOffice suite. So far on the few occasions I've needed it LibreOffice has done the job.

I still use the previous laptop, my workhorse computer with Office installed. for most of my business type work.

LibreOffice isn't the only option. There's a useful review of alternatives at 9 Of The Best Free & Low-Cost Alternatives To Microsoft Office.

My biggest complaint with MS Office is they will change with the newer editions and you will no longer be able to open the "older" documents in previous versions.

Libre Office looks like a good choice, especially for a computer without a CD drive.
