Draw is a vector graphics tool to create graphics. It’s a alternative to Microsoft Visio or Microsoft Paint.
With LibreOffice Math you can create and edit mathematical formulae.
And the last one: LibreOffice Base is a database management program like Microsoft Access.
Pros and Cons
- open source
- it works on almost any operating system or device (Windows, Linux, MacOS)
- mostly compatible with Microsoft Office – Files
- it does not provide a solution for E-Mails like Microsoft Outlook
- if you open Microsoft Office – Files it could be possible that not all formatting is visible
So, do we need Microsoft Office or could we work with LibreOffice?
I work with LibreOffice since 2012 and I don’t really need Microsoft Office for private use cases. But at work I need SOMETIMES Microsoft Office, because of a few reasons:
- you’re a developer and need to fix errors which occurs in combination with Microsoft Office
- your customers, friends or teachers uses Microsoft Office and you need the original formatting
- you use plugins or macros
