So what's an actually better and not just different office suite? And
don't say "Open Office" until you can demonstrate Open Office managing
60 APL workspaces each executing on a different core.
This is not a common use case for an office suite, arguably it is
not even a sane one. Most people use them to create documents, which is
what they were designed for. In that area the descendants of Star Office
work fine for folks who like that kind of thing.
As for better, that's at least partly opinion. I think sc is a
better spreadsheet than Excel because it doesn't try to be anything else
and gets the job done. I think troff and LaTeX are both better word
processors than Word or LibreOffice because I can knock out documents much
more quickly and reliably with them. Oh yes and neither have changed their
interface in all the decades I've been using them, documents written in the
1990s still render perfectly (older ones would too if I had any to hand).
