    Excellent collection Open Office, available for Linux as well & in a 64 bit version, & best of all it's free.

    I ended up buying Office 2019 for £6.99. Took a while to load but all working now, so am happy :)

    Been using MS Office for years so tend to stick to this but has changed.

    Used MS Office 97, 2000, 2003 and 2013.

    I've run Linux for a very long time. The best office set for that varies now and again. Open Office was the bees knees, these days it's LibreOffice.

    This happened a few years ago. Linux is distributed by companies, Ubunto, Mint and etc are all commercial companies. Apache better known for server software sort of took over Open Office some time ago and the open source people moved over to LibreOffice.

    It will also open and edit MS Office files but there may be version limitations - in other words the very latest MS offering.
