@poetgrant LibreOffice is hella ugly, still. Like, it legit looks like MS Office 2003...16 years later
I'm all for FOSS, you know this, but when the alternatives aren't attractive, in a physical office that already looks drab, I'd prefer Office365
Why's it painful for you?
It doesn't make your work flow any easier, but it does teach users different habits and gets them used to an interface Microsoft can sue everyone else into the ground for using.
So OpenOffice & LibreOffice just stuck with the classic UI layout.
If you want to make it look prettier, the sifr icon pack is quite good 👍
eg docx can be read in rival office suites following Microsoft's OpenXML standard, but Microsoft themselves use a "transitional" variant. They only support old versions of Open Document Format because the EU made them. Etc
