It is not lighter, It takes approx x2.5 memory comparing to MS Excel.

Works great, I have to deal with a lot of tedious data entry sometimes. Having another spreadsheet program is useful for running basic ETL (extract, transform, load) processes. Usually I would use Microsoft access for this, but I am lazy and this tool doesn't require any knowledge but excel, plus its fast.

The "save as copy" is a great feature found in adobe programs but Microsoft excel offers no such thing.

I normally associate all .csv and .xlsx .xslm file types through excel, and just run one libreoffice file to help clean excel data

Libreoffice runs much smoother for doing common tasks like "Paste as value" which I always worry will crash with excel.

CONS: Sometimes my mousy gets buggy and fizzes out near the menubar, I do not know why this is though. Only happens with libreoffice calc. It also has a habit of crashing and completely bricking my keyboard so I cant type

"You only can anchor a form control to a cell (like any shape). You cannot make it the content of the cell (or part of this content)."

I don't reallly think there's any significant disadvantage of Calc against Excel for standard user. If you're not some geek or professional working with huge amounts of data, which could lead to crashes of this app, it's a nice free alternative for anyone. I use it regularly and it works like a charm.

I like everything about LibreOffice, aside from constant hanging/slowdowns and crashes when opening larger CSV files that makes it unusable for me.
