    OnlyOffice looks great future, i did not try it yet, but it claimed to be fully compatible with ms office and for me, it is important because the only barrier for me to leave windows completely is the office file format.

    Is there any information on installation? Like is that using .deb or install it on terminal? If using terminal is there any info about its repository?

    You spelled ‘its’ wrongly several times in this text.

    Still all these look like toys compared to the original.
    Still no respectable Project management alternative to project.
    Still no desktop database like Access.
    I think the open source community should get their act together if they want linux desktop to be a real alternative to professional applications.

      ….regards to the Database you got tons of better choice……..

      Standard SQL Database like MySQL, Maria DB
      if you needs NoSQL you get Mongodb…..
      if you want light weight build in db you got SQLite, view/managing operation you got tons of choice as well, like SQLite manager plugin for Firefox, SqliteStudio etc…..

      Seriously I cannot think any reason you need Access (its not like SQLite does not support ODBC or what)….. hell even in C# development i would chose SQLite over Access any day.

        Ben,

        Of course, MySQL is a great database. However, the report creation by MS-Access my reason to remain using it.

        If among the tons of better choices one has the same easy report creation as MS-Access, I will immediately switch to it. What is your advice.

    Linux Mint 17 Sarah…
    Calligra – no way.
    Libre Office, very good writer, disappointing spreadsheet, hopeless draw
    WPS – very good, but is not good at making Table Contents, at least had some examples of that (won’t obey the styles / headings).
    Soft Maker, Free Office is also very good, that is, the spreadsheet lacks : Text to Columns (free version). That is not nice at all.
    Soft Maker has excellent manuals online. These are world class…
