this is the first I've heard of onlyoffice, do you (anyone) know how it compares to Libreoffice?
Out of the box OnlyOffice looks and feels more like Microsoft Office than OpenOffice. In OpenOffice you can adhust the interface and icons to make it look more like M$ Office (but even then OnlyOffice looks a little more like M$ than LibreOffice tweaked).

Speed differs a lot, so hard to tell what's faster on your PC. I have had a PC on which LibreOffice was way slower than OnlyOffice. on my current laptop LibreOffice is a lot faster.

The general consensus is that OnlyOffice has much better compatibility with MS Office when compared to Libre Office. It is free and Open Source, so you can download and check it out:

@simmerskool

What Virtuoso mentioned. :)

@LennyFox

Yes, for me LibreOffice was pretty fast on my old computer, but quite a bit slower on my new PC. (Although it is a lot more powerful.) So it was a nice surprise for me to see that OnlyOffice is so fast. So now this is my new standard office program. By the way, it does not mean that I think LibreOffice is bad or something, it is just slower for me than OnlyOffice.

I just updated Libreoffice from production version 7.. to 24.2 "power user" version. Seeing a few anomalies re text color in both spreadsheets and text docs, but nothing concerning.
I think I will install onlyoffice on a VM today or soon. I assume onlyoffice will read libreoffice formatted files...? :unsure:

Agree, but for excel spreadsheets copied into word documents, libre office does a better job. Powerpoints compatibility of OpenOffice is a lot better. On spreadheets their even and straight word documents Open Office is just a tad better when it comes to branded documents.

How does it compare to WPS Office, which is pretty light on the system and has almost perfect compatibility with MS Office? I'm always open to something better.

WPS Office has the best compatibility but it is not free and open source program, it is a proprietary paid program and the free version is infested with Ads.

The most important point for some people is that WPS is Chinese and was literally started by the Chinese Military. The Chinese proudly say that “There is a company that fully deserves to be known as the Whampoa Military Academy of the Chinese programmer,” she writes, referring to the legendary academy that trained the first commanders of the Red Army."

How does onlyoffice compare to Ashampoo Office 9/Software 2024? (They are essentially the same app)

There are a couple of things making he hesitate switching to onlyoffice:

1. It's the only office suite I know that has no complete (f7) spelling/grammar checker. It's word by word basis.
b. There very little to no available settings. There are no default save settings, no way to add a default author or user info, etc.

Those are very odd, and things I thought were standard.

Am I wrong?

Pester screens? What are those? I don't remember seeing anything remotely douch-baggery.
Most of the apps I got from Ashampoo have popups that ask me to buy other stuff or buy a higher version. This happens all the time for me.
