Libreoffice has most, if not all, of the features available in microsoft office, but unfortunately many of them are only accessible by digging through the menu bar, which means that its not very easy to access frequently used features, unless you customize your toolbar.

Microsoft office had this same problem until it released Office 2007, wherein they came up with their new ribbon UI to bring all the menu bar and toolbar features into a single tab-based toolbar.

Libreoffice has recently been working on improving the easy accessibility of frequently used features by adding these buttons into the default toolbars, which will be available in its upcoming 4.4 release in January/February 2015. You can see a before and after of the default toolbar in Writer in this link - https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/File:Before_and_after_1024.png
