Sorry Microsoft, sometimes open source is just better (and free) There can be several reasons to resort to open source software solutions. Sometimes, it's simply the only suitable offering out there. Others, it's the best of its breed. And when expense is an issue, you can't beat a zero dollar price tag. In any case, open source is an option you can't ignore. As regular readers know, we've lived in a post-MS Office world for a while now. Free office suite LibreOffice does all we want and its Writer module works better than Word. Version 5, released last month, introduces a better organised command centre, Windows 10 compatibility, a style preview panel, short codes that enable quick insertion of emojis and other symbols and the ability to crop images inside the word processor. Whether all these new features matter to every user is not the point. The point is that LibreOffice develops under democratic principles, where users can vote on the features they want most. And since the development team has no commercial reason to hold back new features to maximise the profitability of older versions, enhancements flow through shortly after they're ready. #technology #opensource
