My System Specs

Default LibreOffice vrs OpenOffice

Currently downloading both, anybody out there with OpenOffice experience who's got a preference?

Home LibreOffice

- The Free and Open Productivity Suite

I had originally thought that libreoffice was a completely new productivity suite, but then discovered that it's an offshoot of openoffice which came to be when Oracle bought the rights to OpenOffice and changed the license from a true opensource project.

Any thoughts on the two?

edit: Google search pointing to URLs discussing the difference / controversy......
