If you are looking for LibreOffice Base, you have come to the right place. We explain what LibreOffice Base is and point you to the official download.
What is LibreOffice Base?
The Libre Office Base application is part of the Libre Office suite of productivity software and is meant to fill the analogue of Microsoft Office Access and Corel’s Paradox programs. The Libre Office Base software is a database creation and management engine (thus the name). Base, in essence, acts as a GUI for external databases such as MySQL, PostgreSQL and Oracle; as a frontend for these databases, the Libre Office Base affords the user a view of the SQL tables and queries.
Just as Open Office is an alternative to Microsoft Office (and Corel's Office applications, to a lesser extent), Libre Office fulfills the same role to Open Office. Forked from Oracle's Open Office suite, Libre Office is essentially the same, with a few subtle improvements that those who use either may not be able to spot unless they are specifically looking for something (for example, Libre Office supports more languages than Open Office). Although Open office still is free (with Oracle offering a commercial, paid version of the software with added features like technical support), Libre Office retains the original Open Office (which was first named StarOffice) philosophy of being open and free; to this end, Libre Office is both free and open-source, with its code base being written and expounded upon by its community.
