    "Office suites for OS X are usually a little different than what I am used too. Microsoft Office for OS X brings me all the familiar tools and programs I am used to using. I am so happy to use this. It is the same as the Windows version."

    "Calligra is no microsoft office, but not much really is. For a open source/linux based office suite, it has a lot of polish and supports OpenDocument format, so it's files are pretty inter-operable with the more common Microsoft Office products. I wouldn't use this in an office setting, but if you need an open source office suite, this might be one to look at."
