Features, Office

The highlight of the new release is a far-reaching visual refresh, with menus, toolbars, status bars, and more being updated to look and work better. While LibreOffice retains the traditional menus-and-toolbars approach that Microsoft abandoned in Office 2007, the new version is meant to make those menus and toolbars easier to navigate.

What are the reasons to use either OpenOffice or LibeOffice?

I agree with your reasons to use LO and OOo. I also prefer that they don't use the 'ribbon', and as someone that writes a lot of equations, I really appreciate the dmaths extension.

Also as an avid Google Docs and Sheets user, I also appreciate that LO/OOo respect two-column formatting and that they can repeat headers on tables.
