Open365 Is An Open Source Alternative To Microsoft Office 365

Windows/Mac/Linux/Android: One of Microsoft Office 365 program's chief advantages over open source alternatives is the ability to sync documents via the cloud so that you can edit them everywhere. Open365 has stepped up to finally match this feature set. Open365 works a lot like Office 365 does. The suite builds on LibreOffice Online to let you open your documents in the browser, or use any of the client apps for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android to open them. Open365 also gives you 20GB of cloud-based storage to store your files on that will be synced across your devices.

Currently, the service is in beta, however the developers also plan to release tools to allow you to host your own servers. This helps it stand out from services like Office 365 and Google Docs by giving you a comparable feature set without sacrificing control of your data.

    While we wait for them to be sued by Microsoft for the use of '365', they says it's opensource but I haven't been able to see the source or a roll-your-own version anywhere?

      Then change the name to 366
      One better than 365?

      Probably best released on 29 Feb, in a leap year.

    I wish Writer had writing chunks with indexing cards like Storyist. This video explains Storyist Index cards. Basically, every chunk of writing can have a bullet pointed summary index card attached. Move the index card, and it moves the actual writing up and down the document. It's liked a super Outline, only without all the annoying headings in your novel. It helps organise your novel, fast. A section for storing character notes and other research notes would also be great.
