Fun part here is Current MS Office more likely has trouble with old .doc files to the point it refused to open them claiming they are damaged when they open fine in old MS Office or libreoffice.

    Really neither MS Office or Libreoffice is a 100 percent works every time solution for documents customers can send to you the combination of both gets really close.
    I agree. That's why Wine and Windows 98 Mode exist

Maybe "LO Development Time"? Naahh, too cumbersome. How about, simply, LOtime. It's shorter than "glacial", and it's totally unambiguous--EVERYONE will understand what's meant by that!
    Way to go pedantic there. Ok, let me be more specific so you can understand my qualifier. In the last year, I would say I have had to use Excel specifically to open/use a spreadsheet from a third part 1 out 100 times. There, better? To me that is pretty darn good when you compare that most of the dev's are working for free for US users. Sheesh, how people can complain and bicker about how others use their free time to help us.

    For me they (OOO, LO) were at that point over a decade ago. Unlike dekernel I was either able to start from scratch or take the time and reformat MS docs that they didn't open properly. Now I'm able to do everything I need to do with LO. I especially like using hybrid PDFs so I can send out a PDF to customers while being able to edit it easily if it needs changes.

    But I totally get being stuck with MS Office for the oddball file or two from customers using ancient stuff like the same spreadsheet from 1998.

    You hear that, GIMP devs?

    Personally, I don't give a whoop-de-doo about which which version of which toolkit being used, I just care about functionality. Lately, LibreOffice has been making some good progress for me meaning they are getting to the point where I can use it as my daily driver. Now, don't get me wrong, there are some documents where I just have to use MS Office due to crazy formatting which does happen on occasion, but those situations are becoming less and less.
