The Document Foundation has released a getting started guide in PDF and ODT format for LibreOffice 4.0, the latest stable version of the free office suite. The document is a must have for people and organizations who are willing to or have switched to LibreOffice recently. The document consists of 390 pages and is available for download free of price from this page.
LibreOffice is a premier office suite for desktop Linux, and widely used in several offices, schools and government organizations. It is a free software as well as available free of price, so users and offices can save a lot of money by switching from proprietary software and also have the freedom to modify according to their needs. One of the drawbacks of the LibreOffice suite was its lack of documentation, which made hard for new users to use it. The developers and contributors of The Document Foundation have realized it, and released this guide keeping in mind the requirements of a new user as well as those switching from Microsoft Office.
LibreOffice follows the open document format, which makes its documents to be viewable by anyone in the world for free.
Note: there are some older version of these guide available in the Ubuntu Software Center at a price. If you are using older versions of LibreOffice, you may consider buying them.
