Productivity and office suite made portable so you can have it on your portable storage device with you at all time and quickly make use of it on any occasion
X-LibreOffice represents one alternative to the official portable version of the LibreOffice software suite, a package similar with Microsoft’s Office, but free for both personal as well as commercial use. Since its inception back in September 2010, LibreOffice has slowly but steadily increased in number and set itself as one of the most popular software within its category.
Moreover, LibreOffice has even replaced its original source software, the OpenOffice in several institutions and regions across the world and even sits in the second place (ranking by number of downloads) behind Microsoft Office and in front of the OpenOffice software collection within the Softpedia ‘Office suites’ sub-category.
Backed up by The Document Foundation, a conglomerate of over ten distinguished members including Google, Intel, AMD, Redhat or SUSE, the LibreOffice tends to be take the top spot as the world’s favorite alternative to Microsoft Office. As a matter of fact, at the end of the first year LibreOffice was released, Softpedia counted almost eight hundred downloads and an overall rating of just 1.7 for this particular piece of software while the competition stacked over five hundred thousand downloads and a rating of 3.7.
The next year, LibreOffice barely passed ten thousand downloads and its rating only increased by 0.1, while the so-called competition gathered more than one hundred thousand downloads, while its rating went down by no less than 0.8. Something was, indeed, happening. And soon, just another year in the making, LibreOffice beautifully blossomed and drawn a total of almost four hundred thousand downloads as well as fabulous increase in rating of 1.8 (yes, it was double the one from its precedent year).
Within the same period of time, OpenOffice merely picked up almost one hundred thousand more downloads, yet its rating dropped a further 0.3. By the end of 2013, the initial state of play switched by 180 degrees as LibreOffice has reached a 4.0 rating versus 2.6 as well as a total of almost one million downloads, leaving the OpenOffice suite biting the dust within its trails.
The bottom line with X-LibreOffice is that it serves as a portable alternative to an already established and very serious alternative to Microsoft Office. And that can only mean it provides value as well as the now well-known package comprising the beloved Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base components.
