Velv: "..., they are already locked into LibreOffice, etc and are paying the price to switch to an alternative... You may think because it’s a free world, open source, and not Microsoft that LibreOffice is the perfect digital independence option, but it is just as constrained as every other offering."
LibreOffice is open source and defaults to open and profusely-documented file formats. That means that even if it ceases to exist as a software package, documents remain accessible. This is the opposite of 'lock-in,' and clearly makes LibreOffice far less constrained than any commercial offering. (Especially MS Office, which Microsoft regularly 'games' for no other reason than to increase lock-in... for instance, by the creation of the needless, non-standard and incredibly obscure 'x' file formats.)
