One feature I miss isn't actually a feature in MSO as such, but LO behaves
differently. If I open a spreadsheet from an email or the web it places a
copy in the download folder/directory and Calc always opens it read-only
whereas Excel opens it as read-write. I would like at least an option to

This thread has deviated 100% from its initiation, but in its present guise, I offer this, re MSO: I am the editor of a small Newsletter (circulation ~1000)
and I am sent copy in .dos format that was made by MSWord on a Mac.
Most often, none of the programs I have on Linux will correctly open
the files. OO, LO, and Symphony all print the copy pushed off the the right
and over the edge of the page margin. Nothing will salvage the file and
make it useful.  WordPerfect (XP or Win7) will write them perfectly.
A similar situation exists for the supposedly universal .rtf files, except
they are sometimes even worse to make readable than .doc files. I no
longer accept .rtf files at all.
