Free Office suite OnlyOffice from Latvia has been released in the latest version 7.2.1 for Windows, Linux and macOS platforms. OnlyOffice focuses on text, spreadsheets, and presentations and wants to be an alternative to well-known open source office suites like LibreOffice and OpenOffice.
Alternative to LibreOffice and OpenOffice
OnlyOffice 7.0 is a modern office suite for creating text, spreadsheets and presentations while working without a database application. The software does particularly well with its open source code and multi-platform support for Windows, Linux and macOS.
The latest version contains several bug fixes for the Docs Editor, Spreadsheet Editor, Presentation Editor as well as PDF Viewer modules. In addition, the silent installation of msi packages on Windows has been improved.

OnlyOffice need not shy away from comparisons with other open source office suites.
Free Apps for Android and iOS
In addition to the desktop apps, OnlyOffice developers provide free desktop apps for Android, iOS, and iPadOS, which can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, Huawei AppGallery, as well as the Apple App Store.
Paid Cloud Integration
In the paid version, which costs 139 euros as a home server for non-commercial use and is designed for up to 10 users, users also benefit from partnerships with cloud providers such as Nextcloud and ownCloud. As is known from Microsoft 365, services can be started directly from the cloud, and files can be shared or edited together.
