I seek your learned opinions on a laptop for my daughter starting college.
I know someone in CS and if I recall correctly they were directed to Open Office.
I am a bit of a Linux enthusiast but would never expect my daughter to go through college on a Linux laptop. We eliminated .
LibreOffice is the way to go. LibreOffice started life as a branch by the original OpenOffice devs but has become way better than OpenOffice now. LibreOffice is way more compatible with recent MS formats for sure as OpenOffice can not save in DOCX for example, only open them. Libre is one of the first things I install on most machines. Only reason I keep Office365 is because I flat need 100% compatibility while working for my Masters.
