You are here: Home Services Software and Hardware Computer Applications Office Packages OpenOffice/LibreOffice


OpenOffice and LibreOffice can be downloaded free of charge from the Internet.

The difference is: While OpenOffice relies on product parts that are now licensed from Oracle, LibreOffice has been further developed from OpenOffice, but without the licensed program parts, i.e. as a full "Open Source" Product.

The HRZ has since switched to LibreOffice.

OpenOffice is also available for Linux and MacOS and directly included in some distributions. Further information about the product and download options can be found at
