Hi Nige,

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.

Interesting point, although if Microsoft really wanted to do that, they could get way more info here:

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.

Yes, I think this is something we could really emphasise in such a table on the website! We'd need some quick and clear way of showing how anyone can get involved and make things happen, maybe linking to a blog interview of someone who "scratched their own itch" and achieved something, without going through a large corporate structure as you mention...
