Tech 10: Hot Open Source Apps For 2013


In February, the Document Foundation, the development community surrounding one of the leading alternatives to Microsoft Office, released LibreOffice 4.0, calling it "the free office suite the community has been dreaming of for 12 years." Among its major new features are vastly improved compatibility with Microsoft Office, as well as an increased level of interoperability between LibreOffice and Redmond's Office products. Also new in the word processing component is the ability to add comments to sections of text, which now works exactly as it does in Word.
