I'm not sure it does make MSO better.

I didn't say it makes MSO better.
I said it is one of few areas where MSO Word is better than LO Writer. One 
must remember that there are other areas as well. In some of these, LO Writer 
is better than MSO Word. In other, they go head-to-head.

Apart from Word/Writer, there are also PowerPoint/Impress, Excel/Calc, 
Visio/Draw and Access/Base. I did not say a single word about any of these and 
I don't feel like going into details there.

In MSO you suddenly get different languages (EN; Uk/GB suddenly switches
back to US) so spell-checkers are unreliable so they get ignored.  Bullet
sizes change.  Numbered lists lose count, either doubled-up numbers or
missing a few (or both).

There are some quirks that one must know and remember (in MSO this is mainly 
printer setting and Default.docm template). If you get to know them, MSO is 
quite predictable.

Of course there are bugs that might happen. I had few times encountered 
situation where LO Writer has deleted all my changes applied to paragraphs and 
restored to default template styles. Some strange bug, nothing more.
But someone less favorable might say that LO is hopeless piece of turd, as it 
suddenly changes paragraphs look.
