OpenOffice.org Office Suite

OpenOffice.org is a sophisticated office suite that stands comparison with other suites.

It has all the components you might expect from an effective suite, including Word Processor, Spreadsheet and Presentation applications, but also encourages the use of open document formats, so that you aren't tied to one particular office suite when you come to upgrade your system.

If you like OpenOffice.org, you might consider using LibreOffice, which is the new default office suite in Ubuntu. Most OpenOffice.org developers have moved to LibreOffice in order to speed up the pace of development and innovation.
