Hi Anthony:

How about:

"We made the switch from LibreOffice to Microsoft Office, thinking we'd
get better compatibility.  The support was simply not there, the
community was not there. The cost of moving to Microsoft Office was just
too high"

"Many of our most important documents simply wouldn't convert. We had no
idea how they would display when brought into Microsoft Office."

"Many of our macros simply stopped working"

"You could literally hear a collective sigh of relief when we moved back
to LibreOffice"

This would work if the LibO macros were compatible with MSO macros. But, I may be wrong, I think that LibO macros are not compatible at all with MSO. Am I correct?

If so, then the viewer may suspect that if they move to LibO, that their macros would be 100% compatible, only to find out that they are not compatible at all.

"Closed code is bad"

Maybe too much negatives in the script. Could maybe make it more from a positive view?
