Hi,

I work for a company that is considering making LibreOffice (4.2.4.2) available to it's users as an alternative to Microsot Office 2013 and as a sort of local (offline) compliment to Microsoft Office Online (Office 365). I'm trying to compare features available in the three solutions and haven't really been able to find a comprehensive list of features available in LibreOffice.

Specifically, I'm trying to compare Writer, Calc and Impress to Word/Excel/PowerPoint (online and offline) using the feature lists Microsoft has listed here as a basis:

Technet Article "Compare feature availability across Word Online and Word 2013 desktop app"

Technet Article "Compare feature availability across Excel Online and Excel 2013 desktop app"

Technet Article "Compare feature availability across PowerPoint Online and PowerPoint 2013 desktop"

Can any LibreOffice guru's hit me up with a quick yes/no next to these features for Writer?
