You'll find LO quite similar in looks to Office 2003. The only thing you
need to know is that it doesn't contain any sort of mail or PIM client.
I have never used Libre Office before, or any ‘Office’ type software, other than Microsoft Office
If the Helpdesk say it's fine to use LO, then it's fine to use LO!
You'll find that unless you need to create extremely complex formatted
document, then LibreOffice WILL do everything you need.
For "normal" use then LO certainly contains as much functionality as MSO
- indeed when I was a Systems Accountant for two large PLCs, I suspect
that we could have easily used LO instead of MSO!
I am now (as of Sept 2015) an OU student and am of limited means, so The 'Open University Computing
Helpdesk’ advised me that I could try Libre Office - as it is free and will ‘do’ whatever
Microsoft Office is capable of ‘doing’ in respect of what I NEED it to be capable of ‘doing’, in
order to create any and all documents, essays, assignments, projects, etc for my B.A.(Hon’s)
History degree course.
Is it the case that Libre Office is as 'feature packed' as Ms Office, or are there some important
features that will be missing from Libre Office when compared to Ms Office?
