    Pro: Has a nice design and fits Microsoft's Windows.
    Con: Not compatible with odf. Further it is not opensource. Therefore LibreOffice is always the better choice. Because this office suite is opensource. LibreOffice is compatible with all MS Office formats and ODF.

    Mr. Miller,
    The source code of ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors is listed on GitHub - It is compatible with MS Office formats as it uses OOXML formats as a core one, but you can still edit OpenDocument files and export your documents to this format.
