LibreOffice is NOT just a cheap knock-off of MS Office. It has different ways of doing things. A different ethos. Sometimes it does things that MSO can't. Sometimes it leaves certain things, such as emailing, to other products so that you can choose between alternatives to suit your needs. I tend to find it is the newer users that have not yet learned bad habits that find it the easiest to use LibreOffice.

No amount of FUD is going to change the fact that office software should behave as it should, and not according to fancies coming into the developers' heads. LO doesn't make things 'differently', it does them wrong because persons implementing^Wcopycatting them have no any idea why it was there in the first place. Or because the LO is inferior in core and to implement things properly the whole modules should be rewritten from scratch.
