Hi all,

as the title suggests, this is a shortlist of cost free Microsoft Office alternatives which are all good in their own right and offer almost the same features as MS Office.

1: LibreOffice:


2: OpenOffice:


3: WPS Office:


4: Google Docs:


It mIght only be for Android or a Google Chrome addon?.

5: Microsoft Free Office Web version:


6: Notepad Plus Plus:


7: Apple Pages:


For Mac and IOS only and available via the Apple App Store but I don't know if it is free of charge?.

I hope it is of use to you if you are looking for a free alternative to MS Office. :)

If anyone knows of any other free alternatives, please post them below!. :)

Not my interest field, but, as you have included Notepad ??, I thought I should weigh in with the already incorporated Wordpad?

WPS I'm not a fan of. OpenOffice is kind of redundant since Libre is open source and born out of it. I find it hard to recommend anything other than LibreOffice for an alternative to the Office suite. Notepad++ is great, but not a good alternative to Word.

Completely forgot about that one Dave!. :) That said, Wordpad is not a full-blown office replacement but is good for just writing text!. :)

@BigFeet , I use LibreOffice too, I haven't used OpenOffice in years and I tried WPS for a short time which I didn't really like either!. :)

Used them all at one time or another, usually install LibreOffice for my older clients as it still supports the Microsoft Works formats that the ladies used to create/type their recipes.

Partial quote from https://www.howtogeek.com/411808/what-is-g-suite-anyway/

"G Suite is a collection of enterprise-based products—like Gmail, Drive, Docs, Sheets, and so on—offered by Google via a monthly subscription platform to help streamline your business. But what’s the difference between it and the free apps?"

My daughter works for a high school that changed to it and doesn't have much good to say about it.
