LibreOffice is an Office Suite that runs on a variety of platforms including Windows, OSX, Solaris and Linux. It is a fork of Open Office which is now supplied with many Linux distributions.
LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 is the current default on Athena; this is the version you get by typing libreoffice & or by clicking on LibreOffice Calc on the Gnome applet bar.
General usage information can be found in the What Runs Where listing. There is a fairly extensive online help system that explains most features, and many links to documentation from the LibreOffice support page. Books are also available from commercial publishers.
