Should we request? (question in relax tone)
It’s pretty common (i think) for more serious* work or for those data-analyst (i’m not, but i know some friends) to use Matlab, Python etc.
The available tools/library on those software programs makes data analysis more efficient.
This is also the reason I don’t often use spreadsheet, unless for something simple.
In fact, in python, the Pandas library was made such that it can mimic a spreadsheet.
Now is the other way around, the proprietary software uses the available wonderful open-source materials. It certainly looks appealing to me and probably a good long-term strategy for MS, that is
making the Excel more appealing to data-analyst and thus widening their “market”/user.
To think about it, does LO need to increase their “market”?
What i see from LibreCAD (i love this software, really), when there’s less user/demand, less developer will work on this, the software left with a lot of bug, makes more users give-up on this, and so on.
LO is very popular, certainly will be on Linux machine (to some extend Mac) and far away to that kind of condition. I’m not an expert or anything, but still, I think it is a smart strategy for MS.
Before, I was looking/hoping for something like this in LO, I found those macro python script, but haven’t got time to touch it. Thank you for pointing that extension link.
Just a discussion. Thank you for listening (reading).
*serious in a sense that it needs to be efficient, for example when handling a lot of data, making plenty of plots, complex data, etc. I’m sure any work is serious enough.
