General answer to all of LiberO:

Because it is developed by software developers. Alone, in isolation. Their only contact with Real Users of the products is indirect: Real Users have contact with developers of commercial products, LiberO developers look at commercial products trying to determine how they convey the Real Needs of Real Users.

Developers of development tools are their own Real Users, knowing their own needs and requirements. So non-commercial, open software development tools are generally high quality. For most kinds of tools not related to software development, the situation is like for Liber0: The developers are just guessing what to develop, which qualities to provide.

I never regretted spending money on commercial office packages, sound editors, video editors, 3D drawing systems, sound encoders, ... Software that is developed by software developers in cooperation with Real Users.
