    What about multithreading on the rest of LibreOffice? Did they improve that?

      Hopefully at some day they move to a better build-system, instead of autotools+gbuild.
      It's hard to work with something that's was only created for a specific project with no documentation.
      Same applies to boost with their b2 build-system , but they are moving to CMake.

          My first post.

          How is anyone using LibreOffice Calc? Any time I try to do real life work with it I get terrible slowdowns (on powerful hardware no less), and a lack of proper scripting language. Using the same data sets works perfectly fine under Excel and even Google Sheets. No performance issues, or any other issue.

          Is it me or is there something wrong with Calc?

            No, for me as well. The two biggest strengths of Excel is first VBA, then Pivot Tables. LibreOffice Calc's Pivot Table function is at least 30 years behind MS Excel (somewhat on pair with what it was in the 80s-90s), and the scripting with Java is totally inferior to VBA. It takes equally the time and training to just declare objects in Java as to write an entire program in VBA that does the job.

            Calc's massive inferiority to Excel is the main reason I cannot move away from MS Office. I would hope this would have gotten more support to move forwad with regards to how many businesses/entities that would be interested in getting rid of Microsoft Excel only due to the later privacy issues.
