Libre Office - Wow.

Hey-y-y-y....

In preparation for my Transition from Windows to Linux,
I downloaded LibreOffice Version: 4.1.3.2

My Big Concern was whether or not my library of .ppt and .pptx files was still going to work.

The answer is YES... and not only YES but ZOMFG YES!!!!

I have been using Office 2007 for awhile and hate hate hate it and hate hate hate the friggin' ribbon bars but kept office2007 because I dont have a good reversion path easily available.

LibreOffice brings back some of the features I missed and adds new ones.

And it is FAST as lightning.

Love it. Love it. Love it.

Folks, there is life after Microsoft, and it looks good.

Id love to make the switch from Windows to Linux

But I dont seem to know any alternatives to Foxpro and Microsoft Publisher.

Open source alternatives to foxpro and publisher exist.

Foxpro alternatives are:

https://vfpx.codeplex.com/
(I believe that VFPX is actually Foxpro gone open source, not an alternative - the real deal. But I could be wrong.)

Publisher alternatives are:

and of course - the LibreOffice and OpenOffice suites

I still use Office 2003. Just as good as the new ones. Don't even care.

And yeah, Libre Office is pretty terrific.

I don't mind Libra Office and anyone with license issues should seriously consider it.

However I do prefer the new Office 2013 products.
