If it is not ethical towards MS then why is LibreOffice developing MS
Office compatible software at all?

Right now, LibreOffice is neither perfect in MS Office compatibility nor in
ODF format.

I don't understand what is the goal of LO?

In my opinion, one should be best/perfect in what one is doing but LO is
pursuing two goals and is not very good in both.

LO should focus entirely on only one thing (MS Office or ODF) so that it
can do it perfectly and make users happy and satisfied.

2. "Let us implement others' ideas".

So, why is LO developing MS Office compatible software at all?
