He found LibreOffice lacking somewhat; I find his article lacking as well. He said that it will create flat databases which it will.But he failed to mention that it also creates relational databases. Nor did he mention that it can be used as the front end for other databases.
( Just spouting off a little. )

Is anybody else having problems with Windows 10 / LO 5.0
Recently updated to Windows 10 and LO 5 and facing some issues with
refreshing the cells.
1. When the page is scrolled down in Calc, the page does not refresh
and requires use of arrow key to move to the correct cell
2. When zoom in and out of page in calc is done the page is not getting
refreshed properly - inconsistent
3. On pivot table after filtering the row / column of the pivot table
and refreshing the pivot, the whole page becomes chaos.
I think, i am missing some setting related to graphics in LO.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
I am struck up after Windows updated

LO 5 is experimental (beta at best).
Install LO 4.4.5
Well, it looks like a 4.0 review to me. Firefox gives page info as
published time: 2013-05-01T16:57:00+00:00
and the page says "Version 4.0, recently released, looks a lot like the
long-running 3.x series, but ...."
I'm definitely in the northern hemisphere, unless continental drift has
But I don't agree with this: "Clunky interface. Confusing menu options". Actually I find the new MS Office interface quite confusing, and the LO menu's much easier to use. Maybe I am just a bit too old-fashioned :)

Until late in its development, LibreOffice 5.0 was known by the version
number 4.5. If you're using version 4.x now, version 5.0 is a smooth,
mostly hassle-free upgrade. If you tried LibreOffice 4.x and found it
wanting, the new version won't change your mind."

Right-click in the page and pick 'page info'.
There's something unusual about the site (clearly!) -- I've just tried
an ancient IE in a VM -- it puts up the "4.0" page with a couple of
warning dialogue boxes, one saying about a secure connection, and one
that it can't open the page (???!!! even though it did!). When I close
them, the page clears to a 'cannot display' message; although by a bit
of fiddling, it's persuadable to continue to show the wrong page. Weird.

Nope. Gaelic ancestry if anything (or so I'm told). Does that count?
I wonder if they've redundant servers with load balancing, and one's out
