The 90's called, they want their word processor back.

Why would anybody choose this time-warp-ware over MS Office, or even LibreOffice?

Because some people just need a simple word processor? You know, people are different to you.

This program is a lot lighter/faster than libreoffice and I imagine it would be fine for people that need a simple work processor.
