"silly is as silly does" this is not;
rather inane, bordering on insane ;-)
OpenOffice was referred to as OO ...
LibreOffice was an offshoot of this thus LO.
[and yes, I have used this program since the days of OO.]
BTW - Microsoft is properly abbreviated as MsFt -
check any financial paper if you disbelieve.
MS stands for Multiple Sclerosis; which is a crippling disease which
some folks have -
[and yes, I know some who do have this disease]
therefore to use this acronym for other things seems to be a slap
in the face to these disabled folks.
I really think you have to consider the context where LO or MS is used.
Both LO and MS stand for many things.
