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

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

The file I edited with this software was considered to be corrupted by Microsoft Excel!

Just because of Excel doesn't want to fully support these format (like old version MS-Office format).
