Well, interface wise I don't see that much difference. I use a desktop with 1280x1080 and a laptop with what 13xx by what ever. The point is a little less bling with respect to toolbars is just great. I Never use a toolbar. I go right to the menus. So wasted space. There are, at least four ways to save a file. Really? four ways. File/Save, clt-s, a curious icon at the bottom of the application and in the toolbar. Four. Over fu*king kill.
The ability to cloud mount! YES! I'm OK with Google's online editor. But that also means I have to be proficient in two editors. But this also means I can store my files on google drive and drop my git backup system, moving files from desktop to laptop and back. It's not difficult, but now, not needed as I always have a wifi or G3 connect.
So for the first time, I'm donating to Libreoffice! $50 US. Easily the best money, besides contributing to Bernie Sanders, that I have spent this year.
