What‘s the difference? As with the open-source website editors, it gets a little confusing. Both LibreOffice and NeoOffice run on the Mac and both are open-source. The interface of both look almost identical at first glance, and they both share largely the same features. So why the redundancy and which should you choose? Well, while LibreOffice runs on both Mac and Windows, NeoOffice is Mac only. It is a special branch or fork of OpenOffice that was developed to quash some of the bugs in the Mac version of OpenOffice. So I would say, if you‘re going to choose one, choose NeoOffice.
Build a solid foundation knowledge, you will find that all the programs upgrades is quite easy for you to understand. This is because the core foundation will not change. When it comes to learning new things, you want to take it one bite at a time. Don‘t punish yourself if you can‘t get it the first time. Don‘t give up easily. If you don‘t know how to even write an email, start by just register an account. If you don‘t have a computer, start by using the computers in the public library. Be flexible with the approach but be firm with the intention when it comes to learning the new technology.
