    Can it run natively on Wayland without Xwayland?
    Is it beautiful and intuitive?

    Microsoft Office is so great that it actually is fun to use.

      uid313 They are expanding the use of GTK3 to make it more Wayland compatible.

        I would call MS Office many things, but intuitive is not one of them.

          Intuitiveness typically comes from whatever you learned first. MS Office is objectively intuitive, but, you're not going to think that way if you're so used to other tools. My main gripes about Office is how resource-intensive it is, the fact the ribbon bar is horizontal rather than vertical, and poor Linux functionality.

          But for everyday use, LibreOffice is more than good enough.

            Yes, it's been able to do run natively under Wayland for a while now.

            Source: I use LibreOffice under GNOME Wayland, there's no XWayland involved.

              I haven't used LibreOffice or Microsoft Office much like for everyday.
              But the few times I used LibreOffice I found it to be good enough, and it did what I needed it to do.
              I think Microsoft Office was more beautiful and fun though.

              Microsoft is also available on the web, so you can use it in a browser on Linux.

                Does it really need Vulkan? Is rendering text and a bunch of graphs so intensive these days?
                Also, is Linux support for Vulkan up to the task? (Genuinely curious, I haven't paid much attention to that since I stopped gaming)

                  I hope they will not start the rapid pace version crap like Chome and Firefox.
                  And I hope the Vulkan code will work good on both Windows 7 and Linux.
                  I'm now curios how good is the KDE Plasma integration, have they improved anything in this area ?

                    Libre is sooo behind office. Its sad but I wish Libre got the resources it requires to make it competitive. There's not a slight chance it can compete with ms word or power point, lack of features, templates and even this decade's appearance.

                    Its blocking my family to moving to Linux actually. They just need office and work with files other people send as docx , pptx etc
