Survey time! On what platform(s) do you use LibreOffice?
@libreoffice all 3
@libreoffice or E: all of the above. Libreoffice is usually my go to office suite for any platform.
@libreoffice I use the viewer on Android, sometimes. But it's mainly GNU/Linux. I've used it on FreeBSD in the past too.
@libreoffice wait, no checkbox?
@libreoffice It would be great to be able to choose more than one single choice ;)
@xerz "GNU Linux" isn't a thing, it's called "GNU Linux-libre" 😉
@xerz isn't that GNU/Linux?
@libreoffice primarily Linux, but also via Collabra Office and Nextcloud.
@libreoffice Mac at home / Windows at work.
@libreoffice linux + windows
@libreoffice Linux AND Windows :)
And also on Windows (occasionally) because they charge money for Office and I don't use it enough to justify the expense.
(I mean, I'm glad LibreOffice exists and I recommend it to anyone who needs an office suite but that's almost never me.)
@libreoffice all of the above
@libreoffice I use it on both Linux and Windows. Why would you put the plural (s) in there and then make it single-selection only.?That makes no sense.
@libreoffice everywhere. If there were a mobile version, I'd use that, too.
@libreoffice should allow for more than just one option :)
@libreoffice all of the above.
@libreoffice Both: Linux (home) and Windows (office)
@libreoffice no multiple choice possible?
@libreoffice Although I've mainly used it on Linux, there have been instances where I used it (and sometimes use) it on macOS and Windows.
@libreoffice G/L is king here.
@libreoffice I use LO on every device, and for everything. I do have MS Excel installed alongside it though, because it's sometimes needed for things.
@libreoffice I use LibreOffice at home on Linux (Solus and Peppermint) and at work on Windows (8.1 and 10).
Linux and Windows
Linux and Windows. Was using LibreOffice Viewer for Android, but seems abandonned (?), so I've installed Collabora Office instead.
GNU/Linux and Windows. And if you develop a LibreOffice app for Android, this too ;-)
@edumls Hi, you can get LibreOffice-based apps for Android: https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2020/04/13/status-of-libreoffice-for-android-and-ios/
Thanks for the info. I'm going to try Collabora Office just now :-)
@libreoffice I don’t know about the android version but the iOS version is horrible. Keyboard support is abysmal, text selection doesn’t work like any other app on the platform. Doing basic operations is so non-intuitive that I’d rather use pen and paper (for me, that’s saying a lot).
@libreoffice Would love to use it on iOS, too, though…
@libreoffice Especially Base. I’d love a good general-purpose DB on iOS…
@libreoffice should have been multichoice
