A feature table is great for providing an "at a glance" list of what LO does that MS Office 
doesn't. It has the unfortunate side-effect, though, of providing a list of features for MS to 
build into the requirements for their next version of Office, thereby nullifying that difference.

There are other aspects which are less easy for MS to plagiarise, however. Try contacting Microsoft 
to ask for a new feature to be implemented and see how far you get either (a) contacting the person 
who makes such decisions or (b) succeeding in having your request actioned. Compare that with LO 
where, in principle at least, you could implement that feature yourself, or canvas other users for 
support to get it implemented. That user responsiveness is something that MS are structurally 
incapable of replicating.

Subject: [libreoffice-marketing] Ideas wanted for "How we're different" part of new LibreOffice 

Hi everyone,

The website team is working on a new design (see the website list for
details). One of the planned features on the front page is a "How we're
different" table, providing a quick comparison with other projects:;data=04%7C01%7C%7C467dc0bebd2548f04f0008d9b34ef1d6%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637737973904436344%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&amp;sdata=JOEGywdC0FHbfaKysp%2FS2iMeyg1XbFPJThg2Z9dzUVM%3D&amp;reserved=0

This could be an opportunity to show some things that LibreOffice can
do, that eg MS Office can't, or how LibreOffice is by far the most
actively developed successor to the project.

What do you think -- what should go in there?
