Uses of common open source applications in presentations and projects

OpenOffice, or the more active LibreOffice, takes care of the first three roles. A word processor is used to edit documents, such as reports and memos. Spreadsheets are useful for working with numbers, such as to summarize sales data and making future predictions. A presentation package is used to create slides with features such as text, graphics and embedded video. Slides may be printed or displayed on a screen or projector to share with an audience.
