OpenOffice for Mac OS Big Sur 11.1

john.yohe
Hello,

I'm interested in trying the newer version of OpenOffice which would allow me to (maybe) open Word docs with OpenOffice? Was told in the Forums to write to you.

Thank you,

John Yohe

Hi John,

As Biduille said, we are in the Process to Release 4.1.9.

Currently we are in the Process to create a release Candidate.

These Release Candidates are not realy something you should use as a
regular installations, but for testing if this Version works.

We need the feedback from testers to evaluate if something has been
broken, which is not known yet.

That is why we have asked People to query first. Are you nwilling to
test and give feedback on what yoiu have looked at or used and so on?


Thanks a lot for taking interest. We really need people checking releases.

All the Best

Peter

Gentlemen,

Thank you for all your replies.

I'd be interested in helping with OpenOffice, but I'm also now using LibreOffice, which I'm liking a lot: It's a lot smoother with using and converting Word/docx files.

I've used OpenOffice for years, in parallel with Word, but I'm finally fed up with Word.

I don't understand though: Are OpenOffice and LibreOffice run and written by you all? The same people? Or is there some politics involved?

I'd like to help. I love the idea of an open source program/app. One of the IT guys at the school where I now teach said they were talking about switching to OpenOffice instead of using Microsoft: the big reason they didn't: many of the science classes still need Microsoft Excel. If you can get something equal to Excel, that would be a HUGE sell.

I myself am a writer and just need word processing.

Anyways, what is the deal between OpenOffice and LibreOffice?

Cheers,

John Yohe

That is fine. No Problem.

Both share the same code base and once upon the time both communities
has been one. But since then a lot of time has past. We can still trade
code, but in general both communities talk only very little with each other.

The common ground shrinks every day.

Sometimes.
> Anyways, what is the deal between OpenOffice and LibreOffice?

IMHO the safest way to put it is: Its Family. :)

The parents (Sun, OpenOffice.Org) has passed away, heritage has been
fought over and split, and in the process a lot of dishes has been broken.

At this point I would say there are a lot of emotions still going within
the family, however it has become quieter. But the relationship is still
not the best. I hope we will find a way to improve the family structures
and that it becomes easier to talk to each other.

Therefore for me LO is a sister project, and we are the sister project
to them.

There is btw more the LO and AOO. There is the ProOO-Box, a German
"distribution" of AOO. And there is AndroOffice, a Closed Source Android
version of AOO. Collabora Office an Online Version of LibreOffice. And
Maybe more that I am not aware of.

All are those are (Project) Family to me. And all are brother/sisters
(Project do not have a sex, so pick one you can identify yourself with.
I can not explain to you why I go with sister, for me it feels right. I
am also open for suggestions how to call a very close relative)

However there is no consent broad view on this topic.


All the best

Peter
