    Phoronix: LibreOffice 4.1 Release Piles On New Features

    Just days after the Apache OpenOffice 4.0 release, The Document Foundation is ready with their release of LibreOffice 4.1. This release brings forward many new features to the open-source office suite, including the new IBM-donated sidebar UI found in OpenOffice 4.0...

    I am getting the exact same mangled display on both LibreOffice 4.1 and MS Word 2010. Something is seriously wrong with this document.

    You should consider that maybe they don't have MS Office, so they can't open it there. Please post screenshots like they asked.

    Failed to upload due to size (3.7MB). I will fix that soon.

    Tell you what, you can test your compatibility files, to limit any potential bias you might have against Openoffice.
    I think i made it clear already that i tested OpenOffice 4.0 and LibreOffie 4.1 on this compliated docx file. I havent tested older OpenOffice versions since Apahe (3.4) so i dont know how much progress 4.0 version was. That was i was trying to say before.

    I dont know how much Openoffice improved since last stable (i hadn't installed for a long time) version but in comparison between them, Libreoffice is far more compatible with documents created in MS Office.

    As i said thats what i saw. You can test it yourself and post here your results too. Of course you will need a very complicated docx document to see the differences.

    I've personally never had too many issues with .doc/x compatibility. In fact ironically, just yesterday I opened a couple years old .doc file in Kingsoft Office (you know, the MS Office clone that's popular right now) and it opened with some garbled mess at the top and "/par" at the end of every line.

    Opened in LibreOffice Writer... no issues.

    Not saying it's the norm necessarily, but OO/LO has always worked well for my uses. I even used it for my school work back in 2007 (I think) and got away with it ha.

    If you have then as an LO user I thank you :-)
