Office for Linux

Sorry for not updating this site here as for the past few weeks, I was experimenting with Arch Linux on my old Sony Vaio laptop. Anyway, I will post about it if I managed to successfully install it.

  One of the most important tools inside a PC is Office Tools such as word documents, spreadsheets and of course presentation.  In windows you can easily obtain them using Microsoft Office, that comes with tools such as Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.  In Linux there are also office tools which are made available for you without any problems.  Normally they come pre-installed when installing Linux onto your system.  When I started using Ubuntu years ago, the first Office software that was available back then was Open Office.  Now you can also find Libre Office to the selection of office tools for your Linux system.

Here are the tools that is included :-

Writer is an application where you would do your word documents.  So basically this is similar to your Word Documents.

Calc is an application where you are able to do your accounts, or calculate formulas like what you see in Excel.

Impress is an application where you can show your presentation on slides, which of course is you would know it as Powerpoint.

Base allows you to manipulate databases seamlessly, that is to replace Microsoft Access.

Draw on the other hand is where you can produce simple diagrams to dynamic 3D illustrations.

Math lets you create mathematical equations with a graphic user interface or by directly typing your formulas into the equation editor to be imported to any of the other tools mention above.

  The best part of this office tools is that it is FREE.  Yes, 101% FREE.  You can download them and install them on as many computers as you like without needing to fear of copyright issues.  And the best part is that it is not only available on Linux system, but on Mac OS and Windows Platform as well.  If your company just uses the common tools such as Word, Excel and Powerpoint.  Open office or Libre Office will help you get the work done without the hassle of license key not valid.  Give it a try, and it also supports the latest document format such as docx, xlsx and pptx.
