Best free Microsoft Office substitute?

By danielfranco0234 ·
Hi everyone.

I would like to know, which free or open-source alternatives are the best to substitute Microsoft Office in Windows?

I've been searching for a suite that allows me to open and edit both .docx and .xlsx (the versions that started with Office 2007).

Last time I tested OpenOffice it didn't let me open those type of files, just standard plain .xls and .doc. Of course, it was years ago since the last time I checked it, so I don't know if support for those files has been added or not.

One of the best solutions is to use Linux operating systems.
These are free of cost and does not need any license to use.
It's just that the formats supported are a bit different like .odt,.ods etc
