The Document Foundation <http://www.documentfoundation.org>'s
LibreOffice <http://www.libreoffice.org/>, the OpenOffice office suite
is on a winning streak. No sooner than Ubuntu lets the world know that
LibreOffice is its office suite of choice
than the next day the first full, shipping version of the program,
LibreOffice 3.3, is released <http://www.libreoffice.org/download>.
LibreOffice 3.3 includes numerous new features
compared to its OpenOffice <http://www.openoffice.org> parent. To my
mind, the most important of these for modern office workers is that it
has much better import and export tools for Microsoft Office 2007 and
above OpenXML formats. Love them or hate them--I hate them myself--more
and more businesses are using these formats and being able to work with
them is becoming a business-critical feature. In addition, LibreOffice
can also now import Adobe PDF, Microsoft Works, and Lotus Word Pro
documents and has better WordPerfect document import facilities.
Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.
