Default office application for Ubuntu (and other linux distros).
It is a very good product for its price (free). Contains most of the features found in paid products, such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. Also includes a database, math (math equations), and drawing application as part of its suite.
It's very similar to Apache OpenOffice, but I think it's better. It works mainly on Open Document formats, but also supports Microsoft Office formats (however, there might be errors with docx, pptx, and xlsx- I had errors with pptx).
LibreOffice Impress (aka Powerpoint) lacks some templates, but that shouldn't bother you much.
Overall it's a great, free product. However, I feel that MS Office is still better (it's expensive though).

Libre Office is the best open source office suite that I have tried so far, but I'm pretty used to Microsoft Office, and Libre is enough different to be frustrating.

Libre Office looks alot with MS Office XP/2003. I still do not like the ribbon interface from the newer MS Office Suites. I like to have things simple, handy and to occupy a small(er) space on my display. Liber Office never frustrated me in any way, but it is true that I had to look with google for info in how to introduce mathematic ecuations in the Writer module.

PS: Since I discovered it, years ago, I'm always using it and I totally replaced the pirated MS Office I've used long ago. I will never pay that crazy amount of money to MS for a defective product like all the MS product are (proof: unlimited updates/patches - even they do not know how bad they can code a software product). An OS may be obligatory to use a computer, but the MS Office is not!

Its the best alternative you can get for free. It has most of the features required by any user. Only some very high-end features are absent, but they are mostly required by enterprises.

I also recommended WPS Office - free alternative to MS Office . Available both on windows and linux .

Best Office suite you could ever think of... certainly you'll be disappointed if you're fan of ribbon!
