DANGER! There is a severe security hole, CVE-2018-16858, in ALL versions of OpenOffice through version 4.1.6. Until Apache fix the problem, it is advised to AVOID using OpenOffice. Try one of the alternatives. LibreOffice has been patched in its latest versions, 6.0.7/6.1.3 and up. There is a workaround for the security hole for advanced users. It is posted in the article I've linked below. To quote: "As a workaround until OpenOffice releases a security fix, users can remove or rename the file in the installation folder to disable the support for python." Severe RCE Flaw Disclosed in Popular LibreOffice and OpenOffice Software

Better than MS Office! Saves docx files better than Word. Does not create hundreds of styke sheets in the background like Word does! Imports into QuarkXpress are much cleaner with far less loss of formatting. Does allow you to chose youer own default fonts without demanding that you use Calibri or whatever Microsoft demands of you!

It's funny that MacUpdate shows now a release of version 4.1.4 when a couple of days ago, I downloaded 4..1.5 via filehorse:

OpenOffice is fast and free. It's served my company well. I love that in the current version one can turn off Java. While OpenOffice is not developing as quickly as LIbreOffice, its performance is usually faster and more reliable. Software does not need to constantly change to be useful. Often the contrary. Stability and reliability are fantastic attributes for software.

not happy with trying to adapt openoffice with my mac. wanted to use it because i have a new macbook air and i hate their updated version of their word program, Pages. Well. i am struggling with downloading any templates for openoffice it keeps sending me to Safari's browser which doesn't support a lot of things now. so i can't tell where the templates are. trying to do it with firefox and having similar problems. looking for a video now. Not sure how to rate this because of all the struggles I am having.
