[Techrights] Ten Years Later, Microsoft Admission on Dirty Tricks and Borderline Corruption Which It Uses to This Day in Order to Suppress GNU/Linux Adoption in Desktops - Page 15

Libre Office and Open Office are essentially Office 2003. Calc and impress are definitely really archaic compared to Powerpoint and Excel 2016. Just like there are many good free CAD alternatives most professionals still just use AutoCAD.

Most companies have volume licensing for Microsoft too, so it only makes sense at that point to use the Microsoft solution if your already paying for it.

I try to look into the state of Linux every few years. Maybe this will be the springboard for my next adventure.

What do you mean by battery management?

The ability to monitor battery levels and have automatic hibernation on critical battery level has been available for as far back as I can remember.

power drain is high c.f. Windows, even with dimming the screen and scaling the CPU down, etc. battery life is a lot poorer

I'm guessing that power drain can be affected by what desktop envirnoment your using. Some are "heavier" than others.
