Novell: LibreOffice now with commercial support
As one of the leading contributors to the LibreOffice fork of the OpenOffice productivity and office suite, Novell has now announced a version with a full commercial, "enterprise-class", support package.
Novell says that LibreOffice with Novell Services consists of the six applications that make up the suite – "word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, database, mathematical and drawing capabilities" – offers seamless interoperability with Microsoft Office, and, in comparison to other productivity suites, can offer a cost reduction of 50 to 60 per cent over a three year period.
Previously, Novell had supplied the OpenOffice.org Novell Edition and the LibreOffice offering is billed as its successor. Pricing starts at $120 for one device for one year.
