    It's much faster than Microsoft Office, it's compatible with MSO, can do the same, and it's free. I have tried several MSO alternatives, and OnlyOffice is by far the best.

    Clean modern interface, more compatible with MSOffice than Libre or Open, but heavier to run on slow hardware probably

    Between OnlyOffice, FreeOffice, WPS and LibreOffice, the closest i could get to a Microsoft Word document was with OnlyOffice and since i need the best compatibility possible, i liked OnlyOffice.

    It does not require DotNet or Java to run. It runs natively on all WIN32 systems. That means it can be installed and run on Windows 95 right up to Windows 10 without any problems. It supports only open document formats, like the Rich Text format (*.RTF), that can be opened by any office suite on any operating system without any formatting errors. It is a very small download and install and also does not use any resources from the system.
