Pros: Free, friendly, and visual set of office programs that include a variety of applications and bundles; needs no Java or .NET code to run, making it smaller, faster, and more secure than alternatives; look and feel similar to Microsoft Office but developed independently of Microsoft and open source code foundations.
Cons: Needs CrossOver, Parallels, or WINE to run on Mac and Linux systems; different but not difficult interfaces on various programs; offers a Mac-looking desktop to hide Windows (could be considered a pro by some).
Compatibility: Supports only globally accepted document formats like RTF (Rich Text Format) and does not read or write MS Office files directly; MS Office supports RTF files.
Bottom Line: Interesting niche software but pretty far from the mainstream.
