Pro Allows reading saved content in offline mode
Instead of only saving the link, the content is saved for offline use.

Pro Integrates with over 500 apps
A key advantage of Pocket is that it is integrated in over 500 apps as a way to save the link, including Twitter, Flipboard, Pulse and Zite.

Pro The Pocket plugin for Google Chrome is very stable
Pro Works well across Google Chrome on macOS and iOS
Pro Highlighting available on iOS
Pro Ability to filter by content type

LibreOffice includes applications for word-processing, spreadsheets, presentations, and database management.

It is available in more than 110 languages.

LibreOffice allows encrypting and password-locking files.

Since 5.3, LibreOffice offers a Ribbon design view (similar to Microsoft Office). http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/02/how-to-enable-libreoffice-ribbon-notebook-bar
Pro Portable version
LibreOffice offers a version of the suite that does not require installation. It can be kept on a thumb stick to ensure that you have an office suite on whichever machine you choose to use.
Pro LibreOffice can take from OpenOffice, but not the other way around
Due to licensing each office suite uses, only a one-way transfer of code is possible, offering more long-term potential for LibreOffice over OpenOffice.
Pro The de-facto standard
Being able to tell new people that the FOSS community has an actual default office suite matters. It shows that, despite the bewildering number of options, there can be a clear winner.
Pro Presentations can have 3D models embeded within them
Impress supports 3D models in gITF format.
Pro Lots of extensions and dictionaries
Has many extensions that can add aditional features to libre office
Pro The most user-friendly option
To attract new people to FOSS, having an office suite that is as user-friendly as LibreOffice is a must.
Pro Multiple themes
Many icon themes available to customise the look and get consistent look with the OS.
Con Only the paid version allows to search by tag
Con Can't rename the title of links
If the page title isn't correct/good for a link, there is no way for you to fix it.
Con Correct and open export of bookmarks and tags are not possible
This means that Pocket is (currently) a total lock-in.
This is very sad, unfortunate and creates a no go decision for any seasoned user.
Too many bookmarking and tagging companies have stopped or have gone bankrupt these last years (e.g. Kippt, Spingpad, Delicious (to some extent), etc...). So, if you are going to invest a lot of your personal time and energy in curating your Internet findings (i.e. your bookmarks and tags), it is essential that a total, fair and open export (including all tags) functionality is provided. Personally tested the export "feature" and the resulting .html file that Pocket generates currently included only the URLs themselves, i.e. no save dates nor any of your personally curated tags, nor any other useful meta-data.
This is deplorable, because otherwise, Pocket is a very polished and well-functioning piece of multi-platform and multi-device software/app/web service, with a very easy and well-designed and implemented user interface...
Please fix this, Pocket !
These days of open and inter-operable web services, users are only attracted by valuable functionality, clean UX design and no lockins.
Con Can't import Firefox bookmark tags
When importing bookmarks from Firefox, Pocket doesn't include the tags.
Con Chrome addon doesn't allow you to add tags with keyboard only (have to use mouse) while saving page
Con Chrome addon doesn't let you open your library without saving current page first
Con No good video editing for presentations
Con Track Changes needs to be improved
Collaborating on a single document is difficult. Track Changes makes the document hard to read as both edited and deleted text is displayed, it's not possible to print comments, tracked differences between document versions are sub-optimal and there's no system for accepting/rejecting changes.
Con Libreoffice base requires Java
If you need to use Base, it requires Java.
Con Looks old
Con Documentation is out of date
Good luck turning off autocorrect, because the place that the documentation says that option is doesn't exist.
Con Does not run as stable as onlyoffice
It runs fine until it crashes. Users have experienced multiple crashes when using the cursor to select text in writer, running in Kubuntu 18.04.
Con Master slide management in impress not upto mark
As of version 6, the master slide management is not as good as powerpoint in windows
