Open, Oxygen, Go-Open or Libre Office? ?

Which would be best for a Novice?

That has the most compatibility for opening word documents and excel spread sheet files? So the latest .docx for example. And also saving with corresponding compatibility.

That has the simplest or smoothest layout.

For Windows 7 32-Bit

Any help much appreciated.

Also know any small mail clients like Outlook express for win 7? And not Mozilla, but still freeware.

Thanks2

I think Oxygen does not exist now, Go-OO don't exist either.

OOoKids is a variant where i think you can decide which level you have: Simple (kids), Medium or Advanced and UI is suposed to change in every situation. I don't know if this is correct, BUT the only think i know for sure is it has an UI for childs/olders with reduced functionality.

OOoLight is a strip-down version, but they only released a version time ago, only in norwegian or so, and an US version later. I believe this fork is trying to remove Java shit ant other things from OOo in order to make it smaller and lighter and that's what i'll like it when it's ready.

But ATM i use LibreOffice, and i don't see real differences between OOo and that. There are 4 or 5 differences, almost unnoticeable for end user IMO.

Compatibility and suckability should be similar in all flavors (and i supose, with horrourful UIs).

haha yeah. You can still download Go-Oo, or are the new ones even faster?

New ones being Libre Office, I looked at libre office site and knowing it was derived from the other, it still looked much more complicated then basic Open Office. Maybe the site is just set out that way.

It is just for someone who doesn't use Pc a heap. So as long as it looks nice, functions well and opens basic excel and word files, it is good.

Oxygen Office is still around, for download anyway, it is just Open Office with clip art. and Fonts. all the things tweakers would be trying to get rid of! :D

I wanted to mean... actively developing... just read the one i know: (http://planet.go-oo.org)

About LibreOffice... i have to say again... it's almost equal. But you0're right about one thing. I had to DL the main installer and also a Spanish langpack, cause it doesn't have off-line help by default.

And about OOo4Kids... you can see a mini-list of features here:

http://wiki.ooo4kids.org/index.php/NewFeatures

They are removing Java and Base, and they have a portable version if you want to try out yourself ;)

It would be nice if their simplicity and colours are better than complexity and grey-infinity of LO and OOo.

Kingsoft is only in english, or a limited amount of languages i think.

But its UI is very nice

What free office alternative would be as good?

It is not my Pc, and it is new. So I don't want to be doing anything too fancy.

thanks~ looks basically like a complete rip of msoffice without a heap of programs, and for even more money comparatively haha :D

wasn't being sarcastic though, thank you for the input

Thanks, playing about- not bad!

C:\Program Files\Kingsoft\Kingsoft Office 2010\office6\ksomsc is the file and other one

lincence.dat is as you said- all works fine!

Liking it, but do like so many other too!

SoftMaker O. S. is nearest equivalent as product , back on a topic original request it would have to be between Lotus Symphony and Open O. S (unfortunately) as Libre O. is a bit buggy and has minor inconveniences of like little support or templates or languages...so as Go O.

still all mentioned is whole load better than M$ O

Is Kingsoft ruler always measuring characters length?

I gave a quick review and it seems you can't change that.
