This Office suite is a quality product with good functionality. It is compatible with many known competitor formats such as MS Office documents, which makes it a viable application for many consumer and corporate installations.

The drawbacks I have found are the functionality in their Draw program and the visual appearance. Their draw program has limited functionality and needs improvements to compete with applications such as MS Visio. I have had some difficulty converting users to this application suite because they feel that it looks like it belongs on MS Windows 95, if the developers spend some time working on the visual appearance of the application suite it would help to increase interest in the product and will result in greater adaptation.

If you use Linux (whatever distro) and you need to work with it you obviously need an Office Suite. This is the most stable, feature rich, complete office suite for common document exchange. Don't matter whatever other colleague uses, it fits perfectly in every environment (Win, OS-X, Linux). A lot of Public Administrations, states, regions all across Europe are using it to cut license costs and doing something in the enterprise market
