The most popular free office suite for Mac

Apache OpenOffice for Mac is a powerful and free alternative to Microsoft Office.

This office suite is multi-platform and multilingual, and works with other office suites such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint.

Interface components and features

OpenOffice differs from Microsoft Office in its common interface and has six components.

With this app you can create Write and Calc spreadsheets, Impress presentations, manage databases with Base, use Draw and work in the Formula math program.

The application is written in Java, which slows it down a bit, but in recent versions of the application features have been improved.

The application has many buttons and settings, which can be confusing for a new user, but in the future you can easily and efficiently work with OpenOffice, having mastered all the features.

Unlike Microsoft Office, Apache OpenOffice for Mac is not so perfect, but its main advantage is that it is free.

And if you want to save applications for permanent work, then install Apache OpenOffice for Mac and use it, but you will have to turn a blind eye to some imperfections.

One such imperfection is that you may sometimes have problems printing or formatting a file.

However, we hope that in the future the developers will improve the interface and capabilities of the application to make it an even better alternative to Microsoft Office, even free.

Work with Mac

Apache OpenOffice for Mac is currently the most popular office suite for Mac users because it is free and has all tools which you need to work.

Finally, OpenOffice has a native version for Mac, so you won't have to start the X11 server.

When you start, you will find that the application does not automatically offer a guide to select the type of document, but you can select the desired document in the menu.

There are no problems with Microsoft Office files, because OpenOffice supports all main file formats.
