The answer is very clear, why discuss it?

The "business use"-question sadly is reduced to the question of paying for a piece of software. But like any individual, companies are also bound to licenses accompanied by the software. IMO it is worth to spend a word on that fact, since there are legal departments in this world - believe it or not - which prevent the use of (some) opensource software products, due to the terms of such license conditions.

For larger deployments, The Document Foundation strongly recommends considering professional support options, provided by LibreOffice developers, consultants and professional trainers: https://www.documentfoundation.org/ge...

I don't see the point of your question - which you have them answered. The only further discussion would be that it should not be free for business use and be chargeable for such use.
