16 Most Used Microsoft Office Alternatives for Linux

13. EuroOffice

EuroOffice is another open-source application with aims to further enhance the office experience by combining the best of OpenOffice and LibreOffice for more interoperability and extensibility.

There is both a free and professional version however, and includes most if not all of the features that can be found on the office suites that it has its base and even more – specific to the professional version (which is closed) which include additional spell checkers and tools.

14. ThinkFree Office

ThinkFree is yet another proprietary Office suite of applications that aim to look, feel and deliver like Microsoft’s Office. It is written in Java and Ajax and is as well cross-platform and features apps like:

  1. Write – word-processor
  2. Calc – spreadsheet
  3. Show – presentation
  4. Note – blog editor
  5. WYSIWYG – HTML editor

It’s a premium office suite and has no free version but a trial that last for thirty days after which you’ll need to shell out some cash for the full experience.

15. Hancom Office

Hancom is a closed-source office suite popular in the Asia (especially South Korea) and also cross- platform. The suite features support for the most-used Microsoft formats and also happens to be the preferred office application for most Koreans.

It has been pre-installed on quite a number of Android-powered Samsung devices in the past and it’s also one of the more intuitive options that is also available in multiple languages.

16. Office 365

If you haven’t guessed it by now, this is Microsoft’s own answer to “Office in the Cloud”. The service is basically a stripped down version of the full MS Office suite available locally as it lacks of many of the advanced features.

You are therefore limited to its basic functionality that will give you a rather sub-par experience. You can however enjoy seamless integration with Onedrive and other features like online collaboration and more.

    I was using OLE between an Excel sheet and Word docs (2003 version, nice, fast and stable) for quite some time and recently moved to elementaryOS. I tried several of the above office suits but up to now I did not manage to get this OLE working and my Office2003 (I hate the ribbons – they are for kiddies not for professionals) does not properly install under wine.

    Any experience what might help (except a VMWare with WinXP and Office 2003)?
