LibreOffice is an alternative open source project for viewing and editing office documents and presentations. It is made up of six modules each with specific functions. The Writer is a word processor and the equivalent of MS Word, the Calc is a spreadsheet editor similar to Excel, Impress is a presentation tool, Draw is for drawing and sketching, Math is for creating and manipulating mathematical formulae, and lastly Base is for database creation.
