Hi Richmond,

I use all components of LibreOffice regularly. I use it on Mac OS X and 
Windows most of the time, occasionally on Linux. Sometimes it works 
slightly differently from what I would expect, but it (almost) never 
crashes. The biggest problem I have with both LibreOffice and OpenOffice 
is their lack of speed.

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
