I think that you are just trying to prove your point by saying anything
which does not make sense.

LO official web page at


says the following:

LibreOffice is compatible with a wide range of document formats such as
Microsoft® Word (.doc, .docx), Excel (.xls, .xlsx), PowerPoint (.ppt,
.pptx) and Publisher.

But you say that **** LibreOffice is not "MS Office compatible software"

So, who is right? - you or LO official web page?

Also, if LO is not compatible with MS Office then why does it give an
option to save documents in MS formats?

Also, if LO is not compatible with MS then how come MS is able to open
documents saved by LO in MS formats?
