What is LibreOffice Writer?
The Libre Office Writer is part of the Libre Office productivity suite, and is the suite’s resident word processor. Its analogue is Microsoft Word, with comparable features and capabilities (or the earlier WordPerfect, now by Corel). The OpenOffice Writer can also create Portable Document Format files (PDF), or as a limited WYSIWYG editor for web page creation. The Libre Office Writer supports .doc, .docx, .rtf, and XHTML files, and can natively support Open Office Writer document files.
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.
