Compare that with LO where, in principle at least, you could implement
that feature yourself,
In your computer, you can always do it.

I agree with Nigel. This point needs to be emphasized.
Also, we have done crowdfunding or used government funding to introduce
features independent of the main developers of a free/libre software.
So, the possiblities are endless with free software.
On the other hand, what happens if Microsoft shuts down. In MS Office,
the users are totally dependent on Microsoft which leads to exploitation
in various ways.
Also, features can be introduced anytime if software is free.
I like the freedom above feature narrative.
