The Free and Open Productivity Suite http://www.openoffice.org/

Apache OpenOffice is comprised of six personal productivity applications: a word processor (and its web-authoring component), spreadsheet, presentation graphics, drawing, equation editor, and database. OpenOffice is released on Windows, Solaris, Linux and Macintosh operation systems, with more communities joining, including a mature FreeBSD port. OpenOffice is localized, supporting over 110 languages worldwide.


OpenOffice.org was donated to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) on June 1, 2011. As with any code base brought to to the ASF, OpenOffice.org underwent incubation before graduating to a top-level project on 2012-10-17.

As a volunteer-based organization, the Apache Software Foundation stands most in need of dedicated volunteers who can work on software, documentation, or administrative issues within each of the ASF projects. If you have the available time to contribute, then it is very much appreciated - volunteer contributions from both individuals and corporate entities are the lifeblood of the foundation.
