It is a no-brainer that Apache OpenOffice is still a relevant recommendation when we think about open source alternatives to Microsoft Office for Linux users. However for the past several years the development of OpenOffice is pretty much stale.
Of course it is not a shocker considering Abhishek wrote about the possibility of Apache OpenOffice shutting down back in 2016.
Now in an open letter from The Document Foundation they appeal Apache OpenOffice to recommend users to start using better alternatives like LibreOffice. In this article I shall mention some highlights from the blog post by The Document Foundation and what it means to Apache OpenOffice.
Even though I didn8217t use OpenOffice back in the day it is safe to say that it is definitely not a modern open-source alternative to Microsoft Office. Not anymore at least.
Yes Apache OpenOffice is still something important for legacy users and was a great alternative a few years back. .
