That should be the last reason to choose Open Source Software… I can
understand it, since it was the same for me in the far 90's, but
sooner or later you should go deeper and try understanding the
principles behind OSS.

So you'd want a perfect product, without paying money nor time to
somehow (just like beta testing or translating or whatever else

Which is why I've just started trying FreeOffice from Softmaker.
Do I know for a fact it will do what I need?  No, that's why I'm
trying it out. <G>  If FreeOffice doesn't do it, there are others
to try.   :-)

Well, maybe you'll find a free "product" that suites your needs,
possibly not open, so that you'll be locked in its own encoding cage.

Please respect people of the community and avoid insulting with your
requirements about taking without giving anything back.
