I have used OOo forever... every few years I check out the others (like distros) but it stays on top for me.

LibreOffice is just as good (if not better) tho! Off topic: Would be nice if we could unvote+

Meh... just use Emacs....

Curious though, what do Free Office and WPS, in their crippled freeware incantations, bring to the table that LibreOffice and OpenOffice lack?

With OpenOffice.org (now Apache OpenOffice) and see no reason to change now. I tried LibreOffice very briefly and didn't like it nearly as much.

Well, this is kind of lame teaser. Since the difference was reportedly rather dramatic, at least from your assessment, perhaps you could elaborate as to some specifics?

It's always helpful to have constructive feedback about how LibreOffice can be improved. If you figure out what you don't like about the office suite, it would be great to have your help making the next release better!
