LibreOffice

https://www.libreoffice.org/
LibreOffice is the power-packed personal productivity suite that gives you six feature-rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base.

There are also a good and growing number of free software extensions and templates available.

LibreOffice is a fork of OpenOffice.org, which is now called Apache OpenOffice. Because Apache OpenOffice hosts and recommends using proprietary software extensions, we do not recommend using it.

Documentation

See the general documentation page or documentation documentation download page for user documentation to help you get started using all the functionality of LibreOffice.
