LibreOffice might not be an obvious choice for some; but for those that need the flexibility of BOYD, and cannot afford the price tag of Microsoft Office, LibreOffice is the obvious choice. With a near feature-for-feature match to Microsoft Office, LibreOffice has the price tag to appeal to users of all types - it's free. But don't let the price tag fool you; LibreOffice is solid and will help make your BOYD day-to-day work a breeze. Sure, if your company will purchase Office for you (and you would prefer that software), go ahead with the Microsoft solution. But if you're on your own, and want a solid piece of software you can afford make LibreOffice your choice.
