Features, Office "The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.0, the free office suite the community has been dreaming of since 2001. LibreOffice 4.0 is the first release that reflects the objectives set by the community at the time of the announcement, in September 2010: a cleaner and leaner code base, an improved set of features, better interoperability, and a more diverse and inclusive ecosystem."

1) it's gratis.
2) at least it's somewhat less than 10x slower than Office 2000.
3) it does keming better than I can do by hand.
4) it usually doesn't crash when importing office documents.
5) it only sometimes hangs on copy/paste operations.
6) at least it's document formats are kinda sorta somewhat standardized (pay no attention to the ramblings of Morten Welinder!)
7) it can finally do first-page-special header/footers!

...only three to go, but I couldn't come up with more ;)
