The Report server can be used for cross-platform reporting on Windows, Linux, macOS, Android and iOS clients.
Con Not for teams who want drag-and-drop
Doesn't have a drag and drop component for building charts etc. - it expects you to do the analysis in Python and SQL.
Con Documentation is somewhat weak
Could provide more samples and real life scenarios. Learning curve is a bit steep. Once you get your head around it its really easy to use.
Con Not free
Unfortunately, List & Label is not open source but comes with a price tag. If you can spend the bucks, it's highly recommended, though.
Con Dependency on Windows Printer Driver
Cannot be used in Azure Apps, because no printer driver could be used/installed on this machine and LL needs them.
