Even if LibreOffice isn't perfect (heck, it's not even close!) on a £/useful feature basis it wins hands down...
On the most useful feature for me, maintaining usable performance in spreadsheets with several million cells (~20k rows x ~300-1000 columns) Libre Office Calc is at best slow and janky, with filters that regularly fail to apply (apparent timeout), and at the higher end of the column range flat out refuses to open the file. (Google sheets won't open even smaller variations.)
If you're thinking spreadsheets that large are a horrible idea, so does everyone but the customer and the customers stats person who fold/spindle/mutilate the contents of DenormalizedEverythingInTheDatabase.xlsx into the conclusion of "our stuff works, so give us grant to keep going next year. KTYTHXBY."; and since that's what keeps my paycheck coming.....
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

I had joined a band right before the lockdowns hit here. We were able to get two rehearsals in and we started writing a sing called, "We Got Them Quarantine Blues". I think the singer has a few verses written now.
