There is SoftMaker’s FreeOffice (German), which is faster and more efficient than most of the free alternatives to MS Office.
You do need to activate it once online.
I don’t trust the Chinese WPS Office trying to access the Internet from different processes and has ads.
Libre Office and Apache OpenOffice are too slow and the UI is not appealing.
The list is not about open source alternatives, but free alternatives (e.g., WPS Office).
